In the action between the Nymph and the 
Cleopatra, Lieutenant Amherst Morris was 
serving under Lord Exmouth, then Captain 
Pellew, knighted for his bravery in that bat- 
tle, and Lieut. Morris received his promotion 
on the same account. Honourable mention 
is made of him in the naval histories, which 
vary much in their accounts of this cele- 
brated engagement, the first successful fri- 
gate action in the first French revolutionary 
war. Mr. James's Naval History, gene- 
rally considered the most correct, contains 
a very detailed account, see vol. i. p. 96, &c. 
of the new edition by Captain Chamier, R.N. 
The engravings of the action subjoin the 

following account of it. " The English luul 
23 men killed and 25 wounded, the Frencli 
lost 30 killed, among whom was Captain 
MuUon, the first captain, and 29 wounded, 
and the second captain. In the beginnim; 
of the action, the Nymph shot a-head to 
board the enemy, and by a well-timed nui- 
no'uvre shot away her mainmast and dis- 
abled her rudder, then by a second great 
manoeuvre, they disabled her bowsprit and 
exposed her to a raking fire from the whole 
broadside, after which the ships were laid 
along side, and the enemy boarded and 
carried." The action took place 18th June,

Mrs. Maria Morris, of York, died 25th 
September, 1836, exceedingly regretted by 
all her friends, and more especially by tlie 
poor of that city, to whom she was emi- 
nently kind and charitable, aged seventy, 
having been born 3rd March, 1766. Her 
remains are deposited in the family vault 
in St. Saviourgate Church, York, where 
also an inscription is recorded to her me- 
mory. Mary Philipse, before her union 
with Colonel Roger Morris, had refused the 
hand of the celebrated George Washington, 
who was greatly attached to her.

their great estates, by the rebel parliament 
of ICnglaiid, to fly with his family from his 
seat near Dublin, to the refuge of lil.< kins- 
man's castle of Pole Hore, in the county of 
Wexford. Killsallaghan was then seized

He was attainted for having fled, out- 
lawed, and his estates granted by the lords 
justices to two knights of the Scotch and 
puritan party ; t^vo days after his attainder, 
he signed the roll of the Holy Catholic Con- 
federation, swearing to uphold the Crown 
and his religion ; he must have been no in- 
considerable partizan, for thirteen of the 
principal gentlemen of his name followed

were seized by Cromwell In consequence of 
his having fought on the royal side. In oppo- 
sition to the rebellious parliament, and the 
murderers of his king. 

On the Kestoralioii, it was found that the 
new proprietors in Ireland, the chief strength 
of Cromwell's army, were too powerful to 
be dispossessed, and the .act of oblivion was 
not extended to that kingdom. Conse- 
quently, on the plea of the attainder of 
1642, Ills estates were bestowed on Sir

door in Wexford, for which he was particu-

Penes Delahay de Quinton. 

Concerning this manor of Laysters, Blount, after 
stating the possessors of it from the time of Dooms- 
day, further says : " Afterwards the Delaraeres 
were lords of it, and sold it to Whitgreave and 
Barnebv, for I find this note of hand of Henry the 
Seventh's time : ' As unto the title and claym 
which Edmund Delamere, esquire. Lord of the 
Heethe, pretendeth in the Sterchfield, and in par- 
cell of Bottlewell, Thomas Whitgrave, Lord of the 
Lasters, wol not interrupt him, soo that he shew 
evidently by authenticke scripture allowable to 
learned men, that they been parcell of his mannor 
of tlie Heetlie, and aught of right to pertain to 
his inheritance of his lordship of the Heethe, and 
not to the lordship of the Lasters.'

Stonhousr, jSI.A. prebendary ol' Ledbury, aud rector of 
Eaton liishop, Herefordsliire, who has since tlie decease 
of his lather taken tlie additional surname of Vigor, 
and lias issue. He is son of the late Venerable Arch- 
deacon Timothy Stonliouse V ii^or, grandson of Sir James 
Stonhouse, hart, and ^rauihiepliew of the late Lord 
JJishop of Hereford, (for a detailed account of the

Dr. Taylor is distinguished in the science of Medicine, and was formerly one of his 
present Majesty's Physicians. Amongst the many flattering proofs of universal respect 

• GovEUNon lifRT, whose st?at was Maiden Earlei<i;h, in lierkshire, was not only of distinj;uished 
birth, but collaterally atid by marriage connected witli many leadin;^ fainilit'S. One of the Hurts wed- 
ded i^Iiss .Morgan, and hence the connection with Sir (liarles Morgan, of Tredej^ar, whose dauiihter 
married Lord Kudney. Mis niece also married Admiral Cumberland, whose sister was the wife of the 
Lord Frt'ilcnck Hnifinck. Governor liurt and his lady were also closely connected with the \'iscount 
li«rrin;^t(in, and with Lady Affleck, whose dauj^hter first married Sir Godfrey Webster, and subseijuently 
Lord Holland, (see Huhkk's l^eerage and Buronetn^e, and Fnmili) of Foster <i/' Jirickliili). His Kx- 
celUmcy representi'd, previously to his appointment in the West Indies, the borough of Keadino' in 
parliament. In liis govt'rninent he was most active, and expended a very larfje sum upon the forti- 
fications, which has never been repaid. For his services he received the Kinj^'s thanks and the pro- 
mise of a peera;;e, but died suddeidy at his government before it was completed. L^pon his daugliter's 
return to Kn^land she married Itichard Massey Hansard, esq. There is a sinji^nlar circumstance con- 
nected with Governor Hurt's decease. On the day twelvemonth preceding, as he sat at dinner with a 
larjje party at the Government House, he laid duwn his knife and fork, and inipiired if they had seen 
n person pass towards his private apartment, whom, he remarked, he knew to be dead : however, he 
was rallied by his friends, but nn the exact anniversary he was found lifeless in Iiis niom, not having" 
runjf for his vulet tn dress him for dinner. Mrs. 'I'aylor's mother, afterwards .Mrs. Hansard, was with 
him in the West Indies at the time. Her husband, Uiciiakd Masslv ILtNSAitn, estp an Irishman by 
birth, and prior to his marriage a captain in the kinj^'s service, resided at Miskin House, GI:Hnory;anshire, 
«nd held the majority of that county militia at the period of his decease. His family was a scion of the 
nncuMit and kni<{htly house of Hansard of Lincolnshire, which is fully recorded in the several visitations 
and other public records. He was son and nephew of oHicers who both fell at Hunker's Hill, j^randson 
ol John Hansard, esq. of Lazar Hill. Dublin, nephew of Huph Josias Hansard, es<|. the j^reat army 
atjpnt, and the direct lineal descendant of Sir Uiehard Hansard, who received the honour of kni^ht- 
htHid from Jaiijs IL and was the lirsl who settled ni Ireliuid. Major Hansard married, first, Louisa, 
dauphler of his F.xcellcncy W. M. Hurt, the governor of the Leeward Islands, and secondly, Lydia, 
daughter of Uavid 'rhomas. esq. of l*wher«ch, Glnmorg^anshire, but had issue only bv the former. 

Major Hansard died of cholera in |H()(>, universally lamented, and wr< interred with mihtar)' honours 
at Had:*ham, in Sussex. Hi3 daughter, Ku/.a-Uahha.\i, m. ati in the text, to Juun Ta^ i.ou, esip M.D. 



and esteem he has gained, we cannot omit mentioning the gratifying testimonial he 
received about two years since by the public presentation in Bristol of some splendid 
pieces of plate from the Duchess of Kent and his friends, bearing a highly compli- 
mentary inscription, and in which Dr. Taylor is styled " The Poor Man's Friend." 
At the last election he offered himself a candidate for the representation of Poole, but 
a serious illness prevented his going to the poll. 


It appears from the various records, that 
this family uuqupstionably derives from the 
Royal Houses of Enf;land, Scotland, and 
France, and that its ancestors, the Gordons, 
Dawtiu;\s, 8cc. were not more distinguislied 
for liigh birth, than for brilliant talent, and 
public services. A remarkable circumstance 
is also connected with it — a collateral descent 
not only from the Great Reformer Luther, 
hut likewise from a most pious and excellent 
.divine of the Church of Rome, Father Clerk, 
confessor to the Grand Duke of Tuscany. 

Dr. Taylor is the reiiresentative and heir 
of liis Excellency the late GeneralGoudon, 
Governor of Pensylvania, and the next also 
to tlie Laird of Cli'nv in that distinguislied 
branch of the noble clan and ducal house of 
Gordon. We shall therefore commence with 
a brief sketch of the Gordon family, until it 
merges in the immediate line of Taylor. 

Alexander, 3rd Ea rl or Huntley, (whose 
mother was the Princess Jean, daughter of 
James L King of Scotland, and whose grand- 
mother was Lady Jane Beaufort, daughter 
of John, first Earl of Somerset, and grand- 
daughter of John of Gaiint), died 16th 
January, 1523-4, having had, by the Lady 
Jean Stewart his wife, daughter of John, 
Earl of Atboll, several sons and daughters : 
of the former, 

John, Lord Gordon, died vita patris, 
leaving a son George, who s. his 
grandfather in the Earldom of Hunt- 
ley, and was ancestor of the Dukes 
OF Gordon. (See Burke's Peerage.) 
William, became Bishop of Aberdeen. 
Alexander, was Laird of Strathhaven. 
The son, 

Alexander Gordon, Laird of Strat- 
haven, wedded the youngest daughter of 
John Grant, of Grant, by Elizabeth his wife, 
daughter of John, Cth Lord Forbes, and 
granddaughter of John, Earl of Athol, and 
had two sons, Alexander and John. The 

Alexander Gordon, changed, after liis 
father's decease, the lands' of Stratlihaven 
for the barony of Cluny. He m. a daughter 
of Ogilvie, of Banff, but having an only 
daughter, he was s. by bis brother, 

John Gordon, of Cluny, who m. Marga- 
ret, daughter of Gordon of Cragallie and 
Achpnive,aud had two sons: tlie elder. Sir 
Thomas Gordon, succeeded at Cluny, while 
the yoiniger, 

John Gordon, became Laird of Bris- 

more, and marrying Gordon of Lismor's 
daughter, had a son, 

John Gordon, of Peltans, who espoused 
Beatrix, daughter of Sir Patrick Leslie, knt. 
of Edine, and had a son, 

John Gordon, of Aberdeen who married 
Christian, daughter of Robert Smith, esq. 
and had a sou. 

Major General Patrick Gordon, a dis- 
tinguished and gallant officer, who served 
during twenty years in the Royal regiment 
of Foot, commonly called Dumbarton's re- 
giment, (recently commanded by the Duke 
of Gordon), and became eventually Governor 
of Pensylvania. He m. 3rd April, 1695, 
(O. S.) Isabella, daughter of William Clerk, 
esq. barrister-at-law, and sister of Father 
Clerk,* confessor to the King of Spain and 
to tlie Grand duke of Tuscany, and had (with 
other issue, who all d. unm.) a daughter, 

Philadelphia Gordon, named from the 
place of her nativity, who became the heir- 
ess, last survivor, and representative of her 
family. This lady wedded 

Colonel Abraham TAYLOR,t military 
secretary to her father, and the lineal de- 
scendant of George Taylor, esq. of Derby- 
shire, a magistrate for that county, and 
an East India merchant. Mrs. Taylor out- 
lived her husband, whose decease occurred 
in February, 1772 ; and died in Bath, 17th 
March, 1793, leaving an only son, 

John Taylor, esq. of the Circus, Bath, 
and of Grosvenor Place, London ; so cele- 
brated for his talents as an amateur in paint- 
ing, and the friend of Garrick, Gibbon, 
Franklin, Coleman, and the other wits and 
literati of his day. None of Mr. Taylor's 
exquisite productions were ever sold, J hut 
are principally in the possession of his daugh- 
ter, Mrs. Charlotte Taylor, and his grand- 
son. Dr. Taylor. These splendid eflbrts 
are mentioned in " Humphrey Clinker," 

* There was a correspondence between Father 
Clerk and his English relatives, on the subject 
of their religious difierences, in which Archbishop 
Tillotson took part. Many of the original letters 
of this excellent divine, Father Clerk, are still in 
jMrs. Charlotte Taylor's possession. 

t The Tavlor family suffered severely by the

that the family ever claimed or obtained any re- 
compense from the crown, on this account, or 
in consideration of Governor Gordon's services.

better informed, but his excellence as a

Established in England during the reign 
of Hr.NKY VIII. and undoubtedly allied to 
the celebrated Reformer, the Luthers re- 
mained seated in Essex for centuries, inter- 
marrying with the leading families of tliat 
county, representing it in parliament, and 
exercising paramount influence in its local 
government.* Like so many other great 
families who formerly adorned tlie country, 
and |)ossessed great sway and possessions, 
the liouse of Luther, in the male line, is 
now no more, although the representation is 
at present vested in Mr. Fane, of Worms- 
ley, and Dr. Taylor, of Clifton.

John Luther, esq. of Myles's, who re-

John Taylor, M.D. 

JBatotrcg, of iHoor Jfjousc antr !3omringf)urst. 

Of which JauK Taylor, esq. M.D. of Clifton, 

is also the joint representative. 

The descent of the family of Dawtrey, 
authenticated by the several visitations, is 

* Chamherlen, of Alderton Hall, and Hinton Hall. 
(Now represented by Major-General Northey 

Hopkins, John Fane, esq. and John Taylor, 

esq. M.D.) 

The family of Chambeblen, or as it was an- 
ciently written, Chamberlin and Chamderlatne, 
is one of s^reat anti(iuity, having been settled in 
Suflblk from the period of the conquest. Dr. 
Chamherlen was a physician of London, of great 
eminence about the court, as physician to Queen 
Ann. In his last will and testament he names 
his wife as the Lady Crewe, and makes mention 
of the Cimntess of Arran and the Duke and 
Duchess of Buckingham. The estates of Aider- 
ton Hall, and Hinton Hall, which for many years 
were the undivided property in equal moities, of 
John Taylor, esq. and General Northey Hopkins, 
have been disposed of. 

Dr. Chamherlen m. first, Mary, daughter and 
sole heir of Nathaniel Bacon. es(|. of Friston Hall, 
in Suffolk (see pedigree of Northey-Hopkiss, -of 
OviNG House) ; and secondly, Mary, daughter of 
Sir Willoughby Aston, bart. of Aston, Cheshire, 
and relict of Sir John Crewe, knt. of Utkington. 
By his first wife he left three daughters, his co- 
heirs, viz. 

]\Iarv, d. unm. 

Anna-Maria, vi. to the Right Hon. Edward 
Hopkins, and thence descends the family 

deduced in an uninterrupted line from the 
Conquest until it merges in that of Luther, 
and now also represented by John Fane, esq. 
and Dr. Taylor. Few pedigrees are founded 
on sucli unquestionable proof, and still fewer 
present more brilliant alliances, or more 
uniformly preserved their station. 

John de Alta Ripa, obtaining by gift 
from Jocelyne, of Louvaine, the manor of 
HerynghamorHardham(then called' Haul- 
trey') assumed in one of the early Nor- 
man reigns the surname of Dehaultrey, de 
Alta Ripa, or Dawtrey. He was grand- 
father of 

Joscelyne de Alta Ripa, who had two 
sons, namely, 

I. William, who founded temp. Hen- 
ry II. the priory of Heringham, and 
endowed it with considerable posses- 
sious.f His granddaughter and heir- 

Eva, wedded Sir Edward St. John, 
living in the reign of Edward I.J 
whose line eventually merged in 
the family of Goring. 

II. John. 
From the second son, 

John de Haultrey, lineally descended 
Andrew Dawtrey, of the county of Sus- 
sex, who left by Alice, his wife, a daughter 
of the ancient family of Mill of Hampshire, 
two sons, 

1. John (Sir), knt. who espoused Joan, 
daughter and heir of Peter Scarde- 
ville, and had an only daughter and 
heiress, Anne, the wife of Sir John 

of Northey Hopkins, one of whom m. Miss 
Taylor, of Bitrons. (See vol. iii. p. 109).

Luther, esq. great grandfather of Dr. Tay- 
lor of Clifton. 

t Dugdale's Monasticon. In recording the foun- 
dation of Herryngham priory, by William Daw- 
trey, the Monasticon thus speaks: " The Latin 
word ' Ripa,' was in Norman writings generally 
meant for a river, without relation to ' ripa' a 
bank. The Romans called it * Haultrey.' There 
was an ancient family of knights, owners of much 
lands in these parts, and of fair possessions even 
in the very bosom of the ' Hyh stream,' from 
which they took their name, and were called 
' De Haultrey.'"

Estates — The family of Taylor had con- 
siderahle grants of land in America, which 
were of course forfeited at the iudejieii- 
dence. The great estates of the Luther 
family (ultimately entailed on Dr. Taylor) 
are principally situated in the county of Es- 
sex. The singularly expressed will of tlie 
late John Luther, esq. of Myles's, carries 
proof of the momentary feelings under which 
it was prohahly made. Being separated 
from his wife and having no issue, he 

adopted his nephew, John Taylor, the son of 
his favourite sister Rehecca, but that gentle- 
man having ofiended him, he bequeathed his 
possessions, afterconsiderable legacies, to his 
private tutor. Dr. Watson, (the well known 
Bishop of Landatf), and his housekeeper 
Mrs. Williams, first to his other nephew, 
Francis, the second son of his sister, Mrs. 
Fane, and then to the elder son John 
Fane, esq. but the ultimate reversion he 
strictly entailed on the "Taylors," whom 
he directs to assume therewith the name and 
arms of Luther only,Jevidently contemplating 
that this branch of his family would perpe- 
tuate him. 

The estate of Vicars Hill, bequeathed to 
Dr. Taylor's father by Richard Luther, (who 
died there, having relinquished his estate of 
Myles to his son on his marriage, and lies 
interred under a handsome monument in 
the parish church of Boldre), was sold by 
him to Col. Cleveland, and the family have 
subsequently disposed of their undivided 
moiety of Alderton Hall and Hinton Hall, 
Suffolk, as we before noticed. 

Residence — Huntly Lodge, Cheltenham.

they were originally derived. They are 
comprehended in that large tract of country, 
which, in the twelfth century, was granted 
by Alan, the high steward, to the Monks of 
Melross, as mentioned by Crawfurd, in his 
Hist, of Renf. edit. 1818, p. 13S: "Per 
divisas suas, inter terram de Mauchlyn et 
terrain Gilberti filii Richeri, cum tota pas- 
tura forestae sua; usque ad divisas de Dune- 
glass [Douglass .'] et Lismaliague, et de 
Glengavil ;" which was ratified by King 
William. This grant appears to have ex- 
tended to the marches of these lands men- 
tioned, but not beyond them. The Glengiel, 
or Glengavil, is a muirland streamlet, rising 
among the hills, a mile or two north-west 
of the village of Muirkirk, and joins the 
Avon about three miles south-eastward of 
the town of Stratliaven ; so that this grant 
included that muirish part of Avondale to 
the westward of the water of Gavil, whilst 
the parishes of Mauchline, Sorn, and Muir- 
kirk, were probably wholly included within 

Out of this ample gift the Alonks of Mel- 
rose endowed a religious house at Mauch- 
line, with part of these lands, holding of

" The Campbells of Auchmannoch," says 
Robertson, " have been respectable land- 
holders, in the district of Kyle-Stewart, for 
several centuries. The lands of Auchman- 
noch, and others, formerly and still belong- 
ing to them, are situated in the lordship of 
Kylesmuir, and in the north part of the 
parish of Sorn, about from three to four 
miles north-eastward of the town of Maucii- 
line, and about six miles south-eastward of 
the castle of Loudoun, from which family 




tliat abbey ; and from time to time after- 
wards feiu'd out tlie remainder to various 
pro|)rietors. This religious establishment 
at Mauehline continued to flourish until tlie 
Reformation, when the hinds belonsini; to 
it fell to the sliare of the family of Campbell 
of Loudoun, when Mauehline became one 
of their titles, which continues till the pre- 
sent day. 

Early in the fifteenth century a family of 
Campbells (lossessed the lands of Aiicbman- 
noeh, under a churcb-holdinf;. That they 
were the ancestors of the present family has 
always been held as undoubted ; but their 
early writs, till the year 1506, are now so 
much obliterated and illegible, as to afford 
no particular information concerning them 
prior to that time. That they are also de- 
scended of the family of Loudoun has been 
a constant tradition, and wliicli indeed car- 
ries every mark of probability with it. The 
first of them that appears in the remaining 
writs that are legible, is 

AiiTHUH CAMi'BiiLL, of Aucbmannoch, who 
has a renewed charter from the Commen- 
dator of Melrose, dated 8tli August, lotio, 
" of the lands of Auchmannoch, to Arthur 
Campbell and Margaret Cunniiighame, his 
spouse, in life-rent, and to their son, George 
Campbell, in fee." This Margaret Cnn- 
liinghamc should seem to have been of the 
family of (Japrington, as in some writs about 
that time, partly legible, the laird of Ca- 
l)rington, appears to be a party. 

C, roKcK (Campbell, of Auchmannoch, suc- 
ceeded his father in these lands, of which 
lie has a charter from James VI. dated at 
Dalkeith, 2(»th September, 1590. He was 
succeeded by his son, 

AitTiiiii Cami'BEI.i., of Auchmannoch and 
Logan, who was served and returned heir 
to his father (leorge, in these lamls, on the 
20th .June, KJOl, as appears from the retours

byterian cause, and thereby incurred the re- 
sentment of the court, as exemplified in the 
measure resorted to in the reign of Charles 
n. soon after the Restoration, called Mid- 
diefon's act, in 1602. Campbell, younger, 
of Aucbmannoch, was fined in £0(10, without 
even a trial, or a single crime alleged par- 
ticularly against him. He was some time 
afterwards seized, and carried prisoner to 
Strathaven,where he underwent a temporary 
imprisonment. At a contested election for 
Ayrshire in May 1700, to supply the seat 
vacant by the death of Sir William Mure, 
of Rowallan, bis vote was set aside, but it 
was found good in the Ibllowiug session.

men Rafl'e and Gervase Paganell, are after- 
wards described amongst the most active of 
the adherents of Earl Handle and his barons 
ill sustaining the interests of the Etupress 
Maude and her son Henuy against hiti;/ 
Sri:rH[:N, which services were rewarded 
by the earl with grants of lands in fee out 
of his demesnes in Cheshire and elsewhere : 
and although the origin of the grant under 
which tlie fee of Pownall (comprising an 
entire township), i>assed has not been speci- 
fically recorded, yet the presumption is 
strongly supported, that like th(^ other grants 
ill the sarae locality, it was the recompense 
of military services. 

"Although (says Brooke) from the seat of 
their projierty in Cheshire, the Pownalls 
were denominated according to the true liri- 
tish cu'thography of the name, and were styled 
alter the Norman custom "de I'ownall," yet 
they were at tin' same lime styU'd in the re- 
cords, written in Norman, Paiiiu 1, I'ayanell, 
and Paynel, and in those written in Latin 
I'aganell. It appears on the register that 
they repeatedly held the high olhci' of Cbam-

Magazine of tliat year, p. 288 : 

" It may be said of Governor Pow- 
nali, that in every station of life lie 
sustained a liigh character for ability, 
zeal, and rectitude of conduct. In tlie 
year 1753 he succeeded Sir Thomas 
Danvers Osborne, hart, in his office 
of Lieutenant Governor of New Jer- 
sey. In 1757 he was appointed Cap- 
tain General and Governor of Mas- 
sachusets Bay, and, wlien in 1761 
he returned to this country, he re- 
ceived the appointment of Director 
General of the office of Control, with 
the rank of Colonel in the army, un- 
der the command of Prince Ferdi- 
nand in Germany. In 1765 he was 
elected a Fellow of the Royal Society, 
'and in 1768 returned to parliament 
forTregony, in Cornwall." Governor 
Pownali was the author of numerous 
works on political economy, on anti- 
quities, and in the Archieologia of tlie 
Antiquarian Society, of which insti- 
tution he was a member.

had issue, 

George (Sir), his heir. 
John Lillingston. h. in 17.37, a commis- 
sioner of the Customs, married, but

Mr. Pownali, who was a magistrate of tlie 
county of Lincoln, and served the office of 
high sheriff, died in 1795, and was s. by his 
elder son, 

SiK George Pownall, knt. h. in 1755, 
H ho was appointed Secretary of the province 
of Lower Canada, and afterw ards Provost ] 
Marshal General of the Leeward Islands. 
He died at Brighton, a bachelor, 17th Octo- 
ber, 1834, when this branch of the family | 
became extinct. 

Another collateral branch, taking its de- | 
scent also from the Barnton family, con- 
tinued settled in Cheshire until its head, 

WilliamPownall, esq. fc. in 1718, removed I 
to Liverpool, and rendered himself eminent 
as a merchant in that great commercial place,, i 
of which he was elected Mayor in 1767, and 
died before the close of his year of office, i 
owing to an overzeal in the discharge of j 
his magisterial duties. A local periodical [ 
publication, in announcing this worthy gen- 
tleman's demise, thus concludes: " His per- 
sonal virtues were well known to all who had | 
the happiness of an intimate acquaintance 
with him ; his public character reflected ho- | 
nour on the society to wliich he was related, 
and both will render his name respected byj 
posterity." He m. Mary, daughter of JesseJ

succeeded his father 16th December, 1830. Mr. Carlyon is a barrister-at-Iaw.

"This old and respectable family," says 
Gilbert, in liis History of Cornwall, " has 
priucipally resided for upwards of three 

centuries in the parish of St. Austell and St. 
Blazey : the surname of Carlyon in connex- 
ion with Cornwall is derived from very re- 
mote antiquity, for besides the Barton of 
Carljon, near Truro, it is upon record that 
a seaport town of this name was formerly 
in existence on the north-west coast of 
the county." Lyons also makes mention 
of the family in the Magna Britannia. 
" Carlyon, or Carlion, is supposed by Tomas, 
whose romance was published in 1804, by 
Sir AValter Scott, to have been the residence 
of his hero Sir Tristrem ; it is worthy of re- 
mark, that among the more remote ancestors 
of Mr. Carlyon, of Tregrehan, Tristrem 
occurs as a christian name in allusion to this 
celebrated hero of romance:" and in Drew's 
History of Cornwall is the following ac- 
count : " Herls, when speaking of this an- 



cient family in bis Parochial History, says, 
tliough tlie name be local from a place in 
Kea parish called Carlyon, wliicb signifies 
the care, watcli fulness or circumspection of 
a lion, I sboulil say tliis family of Carlyon, 
by its name and arms, were the descendants 
of Kichard Carlyon, alias Kichakd the 

Thomas Carlyon, esq. of Tregrelian and 
Pennans (sreat-fjrandfather of the present

The family of Creyke* is of ancient date 
ill the East Riding of the county of York, 
and supposed to be of Danish extraction. 
The first on record is Sir Waller de Creyke, 
knt. who was appointed governor of Ber- 
wick in 1340, after Sir Richard Talbot, Ijy 
Edward III. In 13.58, John de Creyke

* The name of Creyke or Creik occurs in 
earlv times in Suftblk. Margery Creyke, according- 
to Dugdale, founded a monastery at Fhxton, in 
that county about four hundred years ago. It like- 
wise occurs in Cambridgeshire. In the south aisle 
of the nave of Westlev W'aterlass church is a grave- 
stone with figures of a kniglit and his lady, engraved 
on brass plates, under canopies. This is commonlv 
supposed to represent Sir .tolin de Creyke, temj^. 
EnwAiiD II. and his ladv, but the arms are not 
those of the Yorkshire tiimily. It appears bv record 
tliat a manor in the parish of AV'estley Waterlass 
passed by conveyance in the early part of the

BERNARD-BEAMISH, ARTHUR, esq. of Palace Anne, in the county of Cork, 
a justice of tlie peace ami captain commandant of the East Carbery Yeomanry, suc- 
ceeded to the family estates by the will of his maternal uncle, Thomas Bernard, esq. 
in 1795, and assumed, in consequence, the surname and arms of Bernard. 





This is a branch of the house of Ber- 
nard, of Castle Bernard, Earls of Baiulon, 
and derives, according to Thomas Hawley, 
King at Arms temp. Henry VIH. from 
"Sir Theophilus, a valiant knyglite of Ger- 
man descent, who in lOCfi, accompanied 
William the Conqueror to England." Sub- 
sequently we find the Bernards flourishing 
in the counties of Westmoreland, York and 

Sir Theophilus, who was son of SirEge- 
rett, was succeeded by 

Sir Dorbard, the first surnamed Bkr- 
NARD, or Fitz Bernard. His descendants 
settled at Acornbank, in Westmoreland, (ac- 
cording- to the authority already quoted) and 
appear to have continued in that county ibr 
many succeeding generations. We learn 
also, from written annals, that when Henry 
II. landed in Ireland, in 1I7'2, he was ac- 
companied by AViUiam Fitz Adelm, Hum- 
frey de Bohun, Hugh de Lacy, and Robert 
Fitz Bernard, and on the departure of 
Henry from Ireland, Wexford and Water- 
ford were entrusted to Fitz Bernard's cus- 

Sir Francis Bernard, knight, of Acorn- 
bank, in Westmoreland, the lineal descen- 
dant of Sir Dorhard, married Hannah, 
daughter of Sir John Pilkington, and was 
grandfather of 

Sir Henry Bernard, knight, who mar- 
ried Anne, daughter of Sir .John Dawson, of 
Westmoreland, and had four sons, Robert, 
William, Francis, and Charles. The third 

Francis Bernard, esq. settled in Ireland 
temp. Queen Elizabeth, and purchased the 
estate of Castle Mahou. He left, with two 
daughters, the elder m. to Sir George Rey- 

and the second to Percy Freke, esq. 
a son,

1695. He m. in 1693, Alice, daugh- 
ter of Stephen Ludlow, grandson of 
Sir Henry Ludlow, of Maiden Brad- 
ley, Wiltshire, and dying iu 1721, 
was buried in the family vault at Bal- 
lymoodven church, Baudon, where a 
handsome monument has been erected 
as a memorial of his distinguished 
character and talents. His son and

the times he lived in, and ultimately fell a 
victim in the cause, being killed in defence 
of his castle. He and his eldest son. Judge

and has issue. 




Mr. Precentor Lowe is a magistrate for Shropshire. 


The family of Lowe was established in 
England by one of the companions in arms 
of the Conqueror, and has preserved a male 
succession since that remote era. " I must 
not forget," says Mr. Abingdon, in speaking- 
of the abbot and convent of Worcester, "to 
mention theyre benefactors. There were in 
thys Lordshyp twoe auncient inhabitantes ; 
one Lowe, wrytten (formerly and still pro- 
nounced heere Lawe) whose auncestor was 
one of the captaynes who fought under Duke 
William of Normandye, in the conquest of 
England, as appeareth in a rowle most ex- 
actly drawn and carefully kept in Flanders, 
the copy whereof was sent mee by a gentle- 
man of this family, to give me light in the 
obscurity of antiquityes. Neytlier can this 
derogat from Lowe of Shropsliire ; where 
Guide Lowe de Clive, 7th Henry VI. was 
returned into the excheckcr to attend the 
King, as an esquire, qui portabat urma ab 
ancestria ; for why may they not bothe 
springe from one roote .' But to return to 
my purpose ; Steplianus de Lawe (son of 
Alanus de Lawe, and direct ancestor of the 
family before us) gave all his land in Lawe- 
lield, whicli he held in More, of the moukes 
of Worcester, to the same priory. He more- 
over, by the consent of Dionysia, his wife, 
gave to his lords tlie said prior and convent, 
in pure and perpetual alms, certain assart 
or new cleared land, called the Seken, lying 
under the Menhey, with all the Grove there ; 
but for the surrender of these and other 
lands, the Priour and Menkes yealded him 
some recompense and were most charitable 
to him, for being by tlie Jews at Worcester 
detained in prison, and loaded with heavy

and the seat of tlie family being on a g;entle eleva- 
tion on the north sije of the river Feme, they 
apparently took their name from it. 

chains, and by exquisite torments compelled 
to redeem himself, his said lords the priour 
and convent, being moved with pity, and 
seeing him forsaken of all his friends, did, 
by the expending of much money, free him 
from his bonds, and restore him to life and 
liberty. Thus did the religious deliver him 
out of the jawes of hys cruel creditors. The 
other auncient gentleman was Penhull, of 
wliom Aluredus de Penhull, falling likewise 
into the merciles handes of these devouring 
usurarious Jewes, then dwellinge in Wor- 
cester, was also by the Priour and Menkes 
redeemed out of that thralldome." The fa- 
mily continued for a long series of years 
resident at the Lowe, and among the emi- 
nent persons it produced in early times, we 
may mention John Lowe, an Augustine 
monk, at Worcester, consecrated bishop of 
St. Asaph, in 1433, Humphrey Lowe, high 
slieritf of .Shropshire, in 1439, and Richard 
Lowe, who was retained to serve in France 
with one man at arms and three aixhers,

in IS24. 



The family of Entwisle was long settled 
in the township of Enlwisle^ on the north- 
eastern extremity of the hundred of Salford ; 
and Camden speaks of Entwisle Hall in his 
time as "a neat and elegant mansion," the 
residence of " noble proprietors of its own 
name." Of its distinguished members in 
early times was Sir Bertine Entwisell, 
knight, viscount of Bricqbec, a gallant war- 
rior of the martial times of Henry V. and 
Henry VI. He participated in the glory 
of Agincourt, and contributed by his valour 
to the conquest of France. Returning to 
England, after the loss of Normandy, he 
enrolled himself under the banner of the 
red rose, and fell slain at St. Albans, in 
1455. In that battle, the first blow struck 
in the fatal conflict between the rival houses, 
eighthundred men are reported to have fallen 
on the side of the Lancastrians, including 
besides the Duke of Somerset, John Lord 
Clift'ord, Sir Robert Vere, Sir William 
Chamberlaine, Sir Richard Fortescue, Sir 
Ralph Ferrers, Sir Bertine Entwisell, and 
many esquires and gentlemen. Over the 
remains of Sir Bertine, who was interred in 
St. Peter's church, appeared, until recently, 
his effigy in brass, with the following inscrip- 
tion : 

" Here lyeth Sir Bertin EntwyseU, knight, who 
was borne in Lancashire, and was Viscount and 
Baron of Brickbecke, in Normandy, a baylife of 
Constantine ; who died the xxviii. May, in the 
year of Lord God mcccclv. on whose soule God 
have mercy. Amen." 

Sir Bertine wedded Lucy, fifth daughter 
of Sir John Ashton, of Ashton, and relict of 
Sir Richard Byron, knight, by whom he left 
a 'daughter, Lucy, from whom the North- 
amptonshire Bradens descended,

Entering the military service of hi.s countiy at an

and France, and on the Stall', in the West Indies.

Nervi, called Gorduni, settled in Keltic Gaul, 
near Gheiil, mentioned by (':esar forty years before

Adam de Goudun, %v1io possessed an estate 
in England, probably in right of liis wife. 
He is summoned to attend Kiny Edward 
THE First's lieutenant, at Gloucester, 14tli 
June, 1287. He died about 1295. 

The Gordons had now extended them- 
selves, like other great families, beyond 
their original territories. Adam de Gordon, 
who flourished at the end of the thirteenth 
century, was the common progenitor of the 
Gordons of the north, and of the Gordons of 
Galloway. The Gordons seem not to have 
mingled in the party struggles during the 
minorities of Alexander l\. and Alexander 
in. Sir Adam de Gordon first appeared 
like a gallant knight in support of the va- 
lourous Wallace, during his efforts for his 
country, and he afterwards contributed his 
exertions to the final success of Robert 
Bruce. Adam de Gordun, the son of Alicia, 
was succeeded by his son, 

Adam de Gordun, warden of the marches 
in 1300, and a commissioner of Kiny Ed- 
ward 1. for establishing regulations for 
Scotland and for Lennox, in 1304. In 
an agreement with the monks of Kelso, 
29th June, 1308, he is designed dominus 
Adam de Gordun Miles, After the battle of 
Bannockburn, in June, 1314, he abandoned 
the English party, was received into favour 
by Kinq Robert Bruce, and obtained from 
him a g'rant of the Lordship of Strathbolgie, 
with its appurtenances, situated in the shires 
of Aberdeen and Banlf, and part of the es- 
tates of David de Strathbolgie, the faithless 
Earl of Athol. He granted the Glenkins, in 
Galloway, and the lauds of Stitchell, in Rox- 
burghshire, to his second son, William, the 
progenitor of the Viscounts of Kenmure, 
ennobled in 1633, and of the other Gordons, 
in Galloway. He was ambassador from 
King Robert I. to the pope in 1320, and 
eminently concerned in all the public trans- 
actions of these times. Sir Adam fell fight- 
ing for his country in the battle of Halydon 
Hill, 1333. His eldest son, 

Alexander de Gordun, succeeded, and 
was slain at the battle of Durham, in 1346. 
His son, 

John de Gordun, was taken prisoner with 
David, at the battle of Durham, and not re- 
leased until 13.57, when William I. Earl of 
Douglas, became bound as one of his sure- 
ties. He was succeeded by his son, 

John de Gordon, a celebrated warrior. 
He received, in 1376, from Kii>y Robert 
II. a grant of the Barony of Strathbolgie, in 
Aberdeenshire, in which grant he is designed 
Joannes de Gordon, (now first altered fiora 
Gordun) without any addition or title of 
honour. The estate is granted to him and his 
heirs iv/iutsomever, and in the grant it is men- 
tioned that a former grant by Kiny Robert 
I. to his great-grandfather Adam de Gor- 
dun, had not taken effect, because the Earl 

of Atliole had returned to his allegiance, and 
recovered his estates for some time, but was 
now again forfeited. By Elizabeth, his wife, 
daughter of Cruickslianks, of Aswanly, he 
had three sons, viz. 

I. Adam, who fell at Homildon, in 1403, 
leaving an only daughter and heiress, 
Elizabeth, who in virtue of the char- 
ter of Kiny Robert II. to heirs what- 
somever, succeeded to the estate of 
Strathbolgie, and to the other estates 
of Gordon and Hmitli/, in Berwick- 
shire, which were settled in the same 
manner. This Elizabeth m. in 1408, 
Alexander, (second son of Sir Wil- 
liam Seton) who assumed the sur- 
name of Gordon. From this marriage 
descended the Dukes of Gordon, the 
Earls and Marquises of Huntly, the 
Gordons of Cluny, and Major Gene- 
ral Patrick Gordon, governor of 
Pensylvania, whose daughter and 
eventual heiress, Philadelphia, m. 
Colonel Abraham Taylor, and was 
great grandmother of the present Dr. 
Taylor, of Clifton. (See p. 8.) 

II. John, of Scurdar-T commonly and 
gue or Essie, [long designed in 

in. Thomas, of Ruth- | Scotland as JocA 
veil or Davock, J and Tarn. 
The second son, 

John Gordon, of Scurdargue or Essie, 
I2th in lineal male descent from Adam de 
Gordun, the founder of the family, married 
Margaret, daughter of Sir Patrick Maitland, 
of Gight, and dying about the year 1420, 
was succeeded by his eldest son,* 

John Gordon, who acquired the lands of 
Auchlenchries, in Aberdeenshire. He m. 
first, Elizabeth, daughter of Abernethy, 
Lord Salton, and secondly, Henault, daugh- 
ter of Macleod, of Harris. His eldest son, 
by his first marriage, 

John Gordon, of Auchlenchries, suc- 
ceeded him, who acquired the estates of 
Kinmundy, in Aberdeenshire, and the lands 
of Lungar and Hilton, in the neighbouring 
county of Kincardine. He married Marga- 
ret, daughter of Sir Alexander Forbes, an- 
cestor of Lord Pitsligo, and was slain in 
1513, at the battle of Flodden, fighting under 
the standard of Alexander, third Earl of 
Huntly, who commanded the victorious right 
wing of the Scottish army. He was suc- 
ceeded by his only son, 

* Sir Patrick Maitlnnd left two daughters, co- 
heiresses of Ins opulent estates. Alexander, first 
Earl of Huntly, obtained a scift of the wardship of 
these ladies, in favour of his son George, Lord ■ 
Gordon, who in 1467, purchased from his wards 
their father's estates. The estate of Gight was 
one of those purchased, and in this manner the 
Bog of Gight (now Gordon Castle) became the 
property of the ducal branch of the family of Gor- 



John Gordon, wlio sold the estate of 
Lungar, purchased tlie lands of Pitlurg, 
and exchanged Hilton for Cravetliin, or 
Coravechin, in Ahcrdeciisliire. He nuirrie<l 
first. Lady Jane Stuart, daughter of Joliii, 
Earl of Athol, hrotlier uterine of Kiiu/ 
Jamfs II. of Scotland, andson,by hersecond 
marriage, of Jane, widow of J.VMKS I. Queen 
Dowager of Scotland, and granddaughter of 
King Edward III. of Knglaiul, being the 
daughter of his sou John, Duke of Lancaster. 
He married secondly, Margaret Drummond, 
of the family of Perth, and d. iu 1544. His 
eldest son, 

John Gordon, of Pitlurg, married Janet, 
daughter of James Ogilvie, of Culleu, (an- 
cestor of the Karls of Findlater and Sea- 
field) by whom he ac(|uired the estate of 
Hroadlands, iu Aberdeenshire. He fell at 
Pinkie, in 1347, leaving one son, only five 
months old. 

Sir Johx Gordon, knight, of Pitlurg, 
who frequently represented the county of 
Aberdeen, in tlie .Scotlisli Parliament, and 
bore an eminent |)art in tlie alTairs of that 
period. He enjoyed the esteem and confi- 
dence of Jamrs Vf. auil many letters from 
tliat Priiu:e to him are iu tlie possession of 
his descendants. He was specially invited 
by the King to attend the baptism of Prince 
Henry, at Holyrood, on wliicli occasion he 
received the honour of knighthood. In Oc- 
tober, 1394, his Majesty, by a royal letter 
and mandate, committed to his custody "tlie 
house, place and forliilii-e of StratlihoUjie," 
and empowered him to receive the rents and 
revenues of the estate for the behoof of 
Henrietta, Countess of Iluntly, the eldest 
daughter of Esau, Lord Aiibigny, (the King's 
first, and for a long time liis most intimate 
favourite) who was created Uuke of Lennox, 
in I.JKI. The Earl of Huntly at that time 
headed the catholic faction, was persecuted 
by tlie Heformers, but protected by tli(' King, 
and Sir John, who profissed tlie protcstant 
religion, and enjojed tlie full confidence of 
Jamks VI. was freipieritly gmployed as a 
negociator in the alfairs of the Earls ol 
lluiitly, Angus and Erml, (lliendistinguislird 
by the appi liation of " the three I'lipish 
l.ori/s.") in tliese negociations, it is evident 
from llie docunienls in the possession of his 
desceiKhiiits, that Sir Juliii had warmly es- 
)ioused tlie cause of Huntly ; and th(^ inllu- 
eiice of his family, and the high character 
which he mainlaiiieil witli both parties, ena- 
blril liiiii to interfere successfully iu bihall 
of tlie I'^arl, and to proti'Cthini from the full 
fury of the Keforniers, while his son, Hubert 
Gordon, possessing the same high character, 
an<l a similar, or even greater degree of in- 
fluence and power, was, on the execution 
and forfeiture of the Marcpiis of Huntly, in 
KK!), of the griatist servile to the large 
laniilv uhicli that iioldeinaii left beliind liini. 

The Marquis of Argyle, by various means, 
obtained possession of the whole estates of 
Huntly, and the Marquis of Huntly 's chil- 
dren thus becoming dependent on the favour 
of their uncle Argyle, constantly applied to 
Mr. Gordon, whose utmost influence and 
address were employed in procuring for 
them a temporary subsistence, and in settling 
the family differences, which had almost 
produced au open rupture with Argyle. 
There are many letters to Mr. Gordon from 
Argyle's nephews, (the sons of the Marquis of 
Huntly,) full of comiilaintsagainsthim ; and 
there are some from Argyle, which appear 
to justify his conduct in those att'airs. In the 
saiueuniform line ofconductMr. Gordon con- 
tinued to exert himself in favour of the family 
of Huntly, till the restoration of Charles II. 
w lien the estates and honours were restored 
to George, fourth Marquis of Huntly, created 
Duke of Gordon, 1st November, 1C84. Du- 
ring the troubled times of the two Charles's, 
Sir John Gordon and his son Robert, were 
olthe greatest service to the family of Huntly, 
and the numerous letters from these mo- 
narchs and from the principal nobility and 
persons of distinction to Sir John and his 
sou, distinctly show the high character and 
influence which they maintained with the 
jarring factions of the period, and which 
enabled them so powerfully to aid their 
friends. Those letters to Sir John are of 
great value in an historical point of view, as 
they throw much light on some of the most 
obscure parts of the transactions of those 
times. Sir John m. Isabel, daughter of Wil- 
liam, seventh Lord Forbes, and d. 16th 
September, IGOO, leaving two sons and a 
daughter. The elder son, 

John Gordon, of Pitlurg, inherited the 
esteem of James VI. He m. Nicolas, daugh- 
ter of Kinnaird, of Kinnaird, but dying 
s. p. in 161!>, was succei'ded by his brother, 
Robert Gordon, of Pitlurg, commonly 
designed of Straloch. This gentleman, a 
poet, a mathematician, an aiiti(piary, and a 
geographer, was born Htli September, I.')80, 
and acquired the rudiments of his education 
iu Marischal College and University, of 
which he was the first graduate. He after- 
wards studied at Paris, w here lu^ made the 
acipiaintance of several nuiarkable men. 
A few years after his return to Scotland, he 
married Catherine, daughter of Alexander 
Irvine, of Ijiiiturk, and not long subse- 
(piently inirchased tile estate of Straloch, in 
Ahenleenshire.when' he continued toreside. 
Ill Kill, he was honoured by a letter from 
('ll \ui.l.s I. "earnestly entreating" him to 
idinpletethe publication of an atlas of Scot- 
land, which had been projected by Timothy 
I'unt. To this work Mr. (ioriloii zealously 
devoted himself, and in such high estima- 
tion were his labours held, that by twii acts 
of the Scottish ParliunienI, hewas exempted 



from all military burdens, while the general 
assembly of the eliiirch published a request 
to the clergy, to aflord him every assistance 
in their power. Thus encouraged, the un- 
dertaking was completfd in the year 1648, 
and soon afterwards published by tlie Blaeus, 
of Amsterdam, under the title of "Tlieatrum 
Scotia>." A second edition was published 
in 1655, and a third in 16G2. Of tliis per- 
formance it is sulHcient praise to state that 
it was the first delineation of Scotland made 
from actual survey and measurement, and 
that its accuracy is remarkable even in the 
present day. While he contributed many 
maps, entirely of his own construction, he 
revised and materially improved all the 
others, adding geographical descriptions of 
much value, and prefixing an introduction, 
in which a comprehensive view is given of 
the constitution and antiquities of the coun- 
try. These dissertations are remarkable as 
the first attempts to settle the ancient history 
of Scotland on the basis on which it is now 
universally acknowledged to rest. On these 
topics Mr. Gordon farther explained his 
views in several essays, hitherto inedited, 
which are mentioned with much approbation 
by Bishop Nicolson, in his Scottish Histo- 
rical Library. Besides the "Theatrum Seo- 
tife," Mr. Gordon wrote several works, 
which still remain in MS. The chief of 
these is a History of the Family of Gordon 
from the earliest period to the year 1595, 
bearing this title, " Origo et Progressus 
Familiffi illustrissinia; Gordoniorum in Sco- 
tia," and like all his productions, written in 
Latin, with ease, elegance and accuracy. 
He wrote also a preface to Archbishop Spot- 
tiswoode's History of the Church of Scot- 
land, and translated into Latin the contro- 
versy between John Knox and Wolfram, 
sub-prior of St. Andrew's. An able critical 
letter on the Scottish historians, which he 
addressed to the antiquary David Buclianan, 
is inserted in Leland's Collectanea ; some of 
his poems have been printed in Bishop 
Forbes' Funerales (Aberdeen, 1635) and 
elsewhere ; and part of his correspondence 
with LordCrimond (father of the celebrated 
Burnet, Bishop of Salisbury,) appears in a 
memoir prefixed to " Johannis Forbesii, a 
Corse, opera," published at Amsterdam, in 
1703. By his contemporaries of all parties, 
he was held in the highest respect, and was 
frequently called on to fill the honourable 
oflice of mediating between them. He d. 
18th August, 1661, and was interred in the 
family burial place at New Machar, on the 
6th of September following. A portrait of 
him, by Jameson, the Scottish Vandyke, is 
preserved in the public hall of Marischal 
College ; an engraving from this pain ting was 
publislied in Smith's Iconographia Scotica, 
and another print lately appeared in Cham- 
bers' Lives of Illustrious Scotsmen, where 

there is a memoir of Mr. Gordon.* He 
had issue, 

I. Robert, his heir. 

II. John, of Fechill. 

III. William, who died at Paris, in 1648, 
without issue. He distinguished him- 
self by his zeal in the royal cause, 
and wrote " Animadversions on the 
Proclamation of the Long Parliament, 
and the Declaration against the King. 

IV. Alexander, d. s.p. in 1615. 

V. James, minister of the parish of 
Rothiemay, who m. the heiress of 
Frazer, of Techmiury, and founded 
a respectable family. He assisted 
his father in his geographical labours, 
and himself acquired eminence in that 
departraeutof science. He published 
a highly curious map of the city of 
Edinburgh, with views of some of the 
chief buildings. He constructed also 
a plan of the cities of Old and New 
Aberdeen, which was engraved in 
Holland, at the expense of the corpo- 
ration, who presented Mr. Gordon 
with a silk hat, and with a silver cup, 
weighing twenty ounces, besides a 
donation to his lady. He wrote a 
" History of the Transactions in Scot- 
land from 1637 to 1640," and "A 
Description of bothe towns of Aber- 
deene," to accompany his plan. Both 
these treatises still exist in manu- 
script, together with a Common Place 
Book of Practical Divinity, which he 
composed in 1646. 

VI. George, who (/. in 1636. 

VII. Alexander, who was educated for 
the profession of the law, became a

and in 1688 was appointed a judge in 
the Court of Session, with the title of 
Lord Auchintoul. 

VIII. Hugh, rf. .V. ;j.

where upwards of one hundred boys 
are now maintained and educated.

* It is doubtful whether the ]iortrnit in the hall 
of the aiarischal College was painted by .lameson, 
or if it was, be must have painted two, for there is 
no doubt that the portrait in tlie possession of the 
present Pitlurg is the work of Jameson ; and it is 
beyond <|uestion a superior portrait to the one in 
tlie college ball. It was from tlie painting at Park- 
bill that the print in Chambers' Lives was takeu.

Mr. Gordon Cuming d. in 1708, and was s. 
by his son, 

John Goudon Cuming, of Pitlurg and 
Birnes, born in 17()1, who inheriting in 
18l;3 the estates of his relative, Skene, of 
Dyce, (eldest collateral branch of Skene, of 
.Skene) assumed the name of Skene, in con- 
formity with a deed of eiitJiil. He entered 
the army in 1779, and joined the 36th regi- 
ment, then under orders for America, but 
their destination was afterwards changed, in 
consequence of several regiments having 
objected to embark for Gibraltar, as being 
contrary to enlisting engagements. The 36th 
regiment vf)lunteered for that service, and 
embarked at Cork, but they were dispersed 
in a storm, and the transports took shelter 
in various ports in Kngland. Peace very 
soon after took jilace, and he received a 
company in the Kith foot. On tin; break- 
ing out of the late war he became Major of 
tlie Duke of Gonlon's feiicible regiment, 
(the North Fencibles, or Gordon High- 
landers,) and served in Scotland and on the 
coast of Sussex, at the period of General 
Dumorier's threatened invasion. The fen- 
cible force having been found to be eilicient, 
several more regiments were raised soon 
after, and he having obtained the rank of 
lieutenant-colonel in the army, ofl'ered his 
services and commenced recruiting for the 
Loyal Iinernesshire Feneible Regiments, 
limited to serve in Great Britainand Ireland. 
He served willi his regiment during the re- 
bellion in Ireland, with much cre<lit, in try- 
ing and dillieult situations, and indui-ed his 
regiment to oiler their service under him, to 
join Sir Ralph .\bercrond)ie in Egyjit, and 
to extend it to any part of Europe that his 
Majesty required. For this spirited oiler 
the regiment received liis Majesty's most 
gracious thanks, and his Royal Highness 
the commander-in-chief was pleased to order, 
as a mark of approbation, that the corps 
should beconu' a royal regiment, and l)e 
designateil the Hnke of York's Royal High- 
landers. On the ])<'ace of .Vniiens, in 1803, 
till' feneible r<giuients Acre disbanded, and 
at the ti'rmination of that short truci', he was 
appoiiiti'd inspecting lield ollicer of yeo- 
manry aiul \ olunteers, and afterwards a bri- 
gadier-genei'ai in the northern dislriets of 
.Scotland, under the command of Major- 
tleni'ral the Manpiis of Huntly (the late 
Duke of(iordoii); thence, in l8l(l. he was 
placed as n major-general on the stalF 
of .Sicily ; then he was remove d to a com- 
maiul at Belfast, in Ireland, where he re- 
\ inained two years, and from that he pro- 
1 ceeded to Jainuic.i, where he served as second 




in command to Lieutenant-g;eneral Morrison, 
the lieutenant-governor of that colony. He 
again returned to Britain, and was immedi- 
atel)' placed in command of tlie Severn dis- 
trict, in England. On the 4tli June, 1813, 
he was raised to the rank of lieutenant- 
general, and placed on the Irish staff as a 
lieutenant-general in command of the south- 
east district of tliat kingdom. This com- 
mand he was obliged to relinquish in 1814, 
in consequence of declining health, and on 
that occasion he had the honour and gratifi- 
cation of receiving a very kind and conso- 
latory letter fromH. R. H. tlie Duke of 
York, acknowledging and thanking him for 
Lis long and zealous service. He m. Lucy, 
third daughter of Sir Hugh Crawford, hart, 
of Jordan hill, and had issue, 

I. William, his heir. 

II. Thomas, who married Harriet, third 
daugliter of Lieutenant-general Sir 
William Hutchinson. 

III. James, who m. Jane-Adelaide, se- 
cond daughter of Sir Thomas Mac- 
kenny, bart. of Dublin. 

I. Crawford, m. to William Forlong, 
esq. of Errins. 

II. Isabella, m. to Francis Gordon, esq. 
of Kincardine, brother of James Gor- 
don, of Craig. 

III. Reubina. 

IV. Li'CY. 

Pitlurg died in 1828, and was «. by his 
eldest son, the present William Gordon- 
Cuming-Skene, esq. of Pitlurg and Dyce. 

From the first settlement of Adam de 
Gordun in Scotland, in the year 1057 to the 
present day, a period of 779 years has 
elapsed, during which time there have been 
tvventv-six descents in the lineal male line 
of Pitlurg. The Viscounts of Kenmure, 
however, also connect a lineal uninterrupted 

male descent from Adam de Gordun, Wil- 
liam de Gordun. the ancestor of this family, 
being the second son of Adam de Gordun, 
the eighth in descent from the first settler in 
Scotland. But the family of Pitlurg came 
off in the eleventh generation ; for on the 
succession of Elizabeth, the thirteenth lineal 
descendant of Adam de Gordun, her uncle, 
John, of Scurdargue, the ancestor of the 
family of Pitlurg, carried on the male line 
of the family, and his descendant, the pre- 
sent Pitlurg, is consequently, the descents 
being clear and uninterrupted, the chief 
lineal male representative of the family of 
Gordon. From the family of Pitlurg up- 
wards of sixty families have sprung, who all 
settled in the nortli. 

From various causes arising from the 
civil wars, Sjc. it would seem that the family 
of Pitlurg lost much of their pow er after the 
year 1661, and it does not appear that they 
began to regain their influence before the 
year 1731. Since that period, however, tlie 
estates hare been greatly increased, and the 
influence of the family has progressed with 
its wealth. The estates of Birnes and Leask, 
and those left by Mr. Skene, of Dyce, have 
restored the family to their former rank, aud 
given its present representative an equal 
political and personal influence with that 
exercised by his ancestor, Sir John Gordon, 
in the I6th century.

Captain Bainbrigge succeeded to the representation of the family on the death of his 
brother in 1818. 




This family, of great antiquity in the iiortli 
of England, came to Lockinston about tlic 
close of tlie rei^n of IIi'MiY VII. " In tiie 
year 15H,3, William Flower, Norroy, granted 
to William Haynl>rigge, of Loekington ("de- 
scended from the ancient family of the I5ain- 
brigges, In the north) a crest to his ancient 
arms, which were tlien confirmed." See 
MS. in Ashmole, vol. 844, f. 2.37. 238. 

It would appear from tradition that the 
name was originally Bayn, a Saxon word ] 
signifying ready, and that the word Urigge ! 
was added in conse(|uence of one of the fa- 
mily having with his sons and followers sue- [ 
cessfully defended a bridge against foreign i 
invaders ; and we now find a village called I 
Hainbri<lge in the North Hiding of York- 
shire, a pass in the mountains between 
Y'orkshire and Westmorland, which was 
formerly a military post of defence, a Homan 
station, and a place ofgreat anticpiity. There 
are also oilier traces of the family in the 
north of Knglainl, as Uainbrigg Holm, in the 
north division ot Kasington Ward, in the 
county of Durham, and at Appleby, in West- 
morlainl. The records of territorial jiosses- 
sions in Doomsday Hook, did not extend to 
this part of Kngland, owing to the hostility 
of the iialives to the Normans ; consciiuently 
the name is not found in that work, and not 
being included among tlie Norman followers, 
it is presunu'd that they did not come into 
ICngland at the (;on(piest. 

These facts, together w ith that of the prin- 
cipal bi'aring in thi' arms being the haltle- 
axe,a weapon of the highest antiquity, being 
the ancient Celt, showing Saxon or rather 
Danish connection, it is to he inferr<d that 
the tamily were established in England prior 
to the Norman invasion.

selects the example of the arms of this fa-

however, in his Letters and State Papers, shows 
that I)b Cii((lis, an Italian, bishop of Worcester, 
then resident at Home, as the kinjj's orator, bribed 
Kinalilo de Modena, n priest living in Cardinal

From Ihe time the family came to Loek- 
ington, down to the last Thomas, of Wood- 
seat, who died in 1818, the representative 
has always served the oHice of high sherilf, 
either for the county of Leicester, Derby, or.

PEDLEIl, PHILIP-WARREN, esq. of Hoo Mavey, in the county of Devon, a lieu- 
tenant-colonel in the aimy of India. 

This gentleman was for several years actively engaged 
in the service of the India Company, and for a great 
portion of the time held a distinguished command in the 
Indian army. His military career commenced in 1802, 
and he was soon afterwards placed in the division com- 
manded by Sir Arthur Wellesley. In 1807 he iield the 
rank of brigade-major, and was under Colonel East at the 
siege of Chyah, where he obtained the thanks of his com- 
manding" officer, by gallantly heading a storming party. 
Subsequently, in 1815, the Marquess of Hastings, then 
governor-general of India, having adopted the project of 
Captain George Sydenham, political agent at Berar, to 
organize a corps of four thousand auxiliary horse under the 
command of British officers. Captain Pedler was selected as 
second to Captain Evan Davies for this important service, 
Rnd he led, under the command of that officer, 600 of those reformed cavalry against 
2000 insurgents, who were devastating the territories of the Company and their allies. 
Captains Davies and Pedler were both wounded,* and the complete success of the first 
affair in which the reformed cavalry was engaged, called forth the expression of the 
governor-general's approbation, in a dispatch to the resident at Hyderabad : from 
which the following passage is extracted. " The governor-general in council has re- 
marked with particular satisfaction the excellent conduct of the reformed horse on the 
first occasion of their being led into action ; the gallant manner in which they advanced 
against a superior force would have been creditable to any troops, and affords the 
strongest proof of the zeal and attention which has been exerted in perfecting this 
corps. The sjiirit with which Captains Davies and Pedler, Lieutenant Rind, and the 
native officers displayed in leading the men into action, affording them the most ani- 
mating example, is considered deserving the highest praise." 

Soon after this affair Captain Pedler reassumed the command of his division, and 
moved with it to the relief of Nagpore, was engaged at the siege of that place, and in 
the action of the Kith December, 1817, where he had a horse shot under him and was 
slightly wounded in the foot, was thanked on the field by Brigade-General Doveton, 
and was mentioned in the report of the general to the adjutant-general. Captain 
Pedler was subsequently placed in command of his portion of the corps by the 
governor-general, in the following flatteriug terms connnunicated by Mr. Secretary 
Adams to the British resident at Nagpore. "The governor-general has learned from 
your private letters that you have invited Captain Pedler to raise and form the Nagpore 

• TliB following humane nnd generous net of one of the enemy's soldiers in this conflict is de- 
servinj; of record. Caj>miii I'edler, nho had heen severely wounded in ihe sword iirm, wiis relurnin^', 
after llie retreat iinil total rout of the enemy, to where the buttle beiran, when he fainted from loss of 
hlood and fell from his horse. A Itujhpoot soldier of fortune, one of the hostile nuiks, observinj; an 
officer fall, rame at once to his assistance, staunched the bleedinj; wound bv tearing otV the end of his 
turhan anil using it as a turnicate, removeil the sull'erer to the shade of a neighbouriie^ tree, where, 
after some time, he restored life and animation. Captain I'eilh-r, on recovering, found himself sup- 
ported hy Ilia generous foe, whom he easily persuaded to follow his fortunes ; and afterwards finding 
Ilim as faithful as he was humane nnd brave, conferred upon him n commission in the Nagpore Auxiliary 
Cavalry. It is further worthy of remark, that this soldier was rec<ignised as a di>serter at lionibuy, 
having formerly served for n short period in the company's army ; but on a statement of his disinterested 
anil liiimnne ccmdiict being made, the coniiiianih'r-in-chief, Sir ]\liles Nightingale, accorded him his free Ilrwas beside hiind-i.iniely rewarded hy many dislinguished individuals at liolnhav. and the 
Hon. iMciiint Stuart I'.lphinsloiie, the then governor, presented him, from his private purse, with '.'00 
rii|iees as a mark of his approbation. It was a proud and just estimation of the chanicter of the liritish 
officers he hnd formed, whilst serving in the company's aniiy, whicli, he often afterwanU acknowledged, 
nctuatrd him in thia disinterested act of humanity. 


Horse, a selection which his lordship cannot but approve. His lordship purposes to 
place Captain Pedler in command of that portion of his Highness the Rajah's troops, 
and his lordsliip expects the service will derive great advantage from that otficer's 
judgment and familiarity with the prejudices of this class of troops as well as from his 
tried gallantry in the field." 

Captain Pedler next joined Brigade-General Adams's division, was present at the 
attack and defeat of the Persha, and at the siege and capture of Chandah, where he 
was again thanked for his services. He was afterwards invited by the resident at 
Nagpore to reform and organize his Highness the Rajah's cavalry, and was confirmed 
in tiie command of the corps by the governor-general of India. On his removal, 
Major Davies thus speaks of his services, in an order announcing the fact of his pro- 
motion, dated " Camp, Ahmednugger, 18th May, 1818. On this occasion the com- 
manding officer feels it due to the merits of Captain Pedler to record the high sense 
he entertains of his eminent public services since he joined the Reformed Horse, dis- 
played as they have been on so many occasions of arduous contests, and distinguished 
by the most zealous devotion to a cause which has required so much of that personal 
intrepidity for which Captain Pedler has ever been conspicuous. 

" Captain Pedler will be happy to learn that his loss is deeply felt by the command- 
ing officer and the corps, and that his admirable and zealous co-operation in effecting 
the purposes for which the Nizams cavalry were reformed, have left him incapable of 
estimating by any common standard the value of such services ; and in taking leave 
of a subje'ct so interesting to his feelings, he cannot but congratulate the service on the 
distinguished place which Captain Pedler has acquired through his own exertions, and 
he assures Captain Pedler, that however their mutual interests may be separated, he 
cannot avoid associating them with his own and that of the troops he has the honor to 

command." , i,,, ■ t> n • i 

After nearly ten years' active employment in this command Major Pedler retired 
from the service, and his resignation is thus recorded : 

" Nagpore, 6th Dec. 1 826. 
" Orders by the British Resident. 

" In announcing to the Nagpore Auxiliary Force Major Pedler's resignation of the 
command of the horse in the" service of his Highness the Rajah, the resident feels it 
due to record in the most public manner the high sense which he entertains of that 
officer's ser\'ices throughout the period of more than ten years that has elapsed since 
he was selected to fill that important station. 

" The duties devolving on Major Pedler at the outset of his service were of an 
arduous and delicate nature ; to reform a body of men such as the Rajah's corps of 
horse then were, and to bring them into such a state of discipline and efficiency as 
might render them useful, or even safe, as auxiliaries, was a task of no common or 
ordinary difficulty; that it has been accomplished with eminent success is mainly 
attributable to the judgment, temper, and address displayed by Major Pedler in the 
execution of all arrangements formed under his superintendence. 

" The constant good feeling evinced, with that zeal and fidelity at all times mani- 
fested by the corps, furnishes a strong proof of the merit of the system introduced into 
that body by Major Pedler, and the resident has only to wish that the same qualities 
may continue, to perpetuate the memory of the officer under whom they have been so 
lono- fostered. Major Pedler will no doubt consider this statement as his best praise 
of the result of his exertions in the Rajah's service, yet the resident must add his 
warmest thanks and applause as a parting tribute due from himself and the government 
which has so largely benefitted, and will still benefit, by those exertions.

LESLIE, CHARLES-ALBERT, esq. of Ballybay, in the county of Monaghan, b. 
23rd May, 1765, m. in July, 1799, Ellen, youngest daughter of Richard Magenis, 
esq. of Waringstown, in Downshire, .and has had issue, 
Henry-Charles, d. unni. in December, 1832. 
Charles-Richard, d. young. 

Elizabeth-Catherine, d. young. 

Catlierine, d. young. 

Catherine-Letitia, d. young. 

Emily-Elinor-Wilhelinina, m. to Arthur French, esq. of the county of Roscommon, 
and has a son, Robert, and two daughters. 
This gentleman, who is lieutenant-colonel of the Monaghan militia and a justice of the 
peace, succeeded his father, the Rev. Dr. Henry Leslie, in February, 1803. 


The Leslies descend from the noble fa- 
mily of Rothes, and are allied by blood to 
many of the nobility of Scotland. Their 
first settlement in Ireland took place in the 
reigu of James I. and difl'erent members 
of the family now possess considerable es- 
tates in the counties of Monaghan, Antrim, 
Down, Douegal, and Meath. The cliief 
branches still existing are those of Leslie of 
Glasslough, represented by Charles Powell 
Leslie, esq. ; of Ballybay, by Charles Albert 
Leslie, esq. ; and of Leslie House, by James 
Leslie, esq. There are also, in the south of 
Ireland, families of the name, respecting 

whom it is regretted that no recent infor- 
mation has been obtained. From a docu- 
ment dated in 1788, it appears there resided 
in the county of Kerry, Sir Edward Leslie, 
hart, who was son of the then late Bishop of 
Limerick, and descended from Dr. John 
Leslie, of Urney, who obtained from Wil- 
liam III. the grant of Tarbert, part of Lord 
Clare's forfeitures. Dr. John Leslie was 
son of George Leslie, who came from Scot- 
land with liis relative, John, Bishop of 
Raphoe, and married tliat prelate's wife's 
sister, Catherine, fourth daughter of Alex- 
ander Conyngham, Dean of Raphoe. 

The house of Leslie, of Hungarian origin, 
ranks, in point of antiijuity, with the most 
ancient in the kingdom, and it lias been the 
rare fortunes of the family to be illustrated 
by an historical narrative*" showing the 
lineal descent of each generation from tlie 
year 1067, when its patriarch, Bartholomew, 
passed into Scotland with Queen AI a ruar et. 

* This very curious book, in the possession 
of one of the family, in Ireland, is in Latin. A 
oene;iloj;-ical tree, as frontispiece, represents the 
founder of the family stretched upon the ground 
as the root, his son as the stem, from which 
shoot out branches and leaves, representing- the 
difterent descendants of the family, with their 
connections, down to the time at which the bock 
was printed. 



in whose liouseliold lie held the hi»li office 
of chaiiibeiliiin. Many families of Leslie 
are now resident in France, Hungary, Rus- 
sia, &c. and several places in those countries 
bear names derived from this ancient cogno- 
men, as Leslinia, Lessilia, fkc. The sur- 
name has been dillerently spelt, Lessley, 
Lesley, Lesly, but most generally Leslie. 
Bakthoi.omkw, the founder of the family in 
Great Britain, stood high in the favour of 
Malcolm IIL of Scotland, by uliom honours 
and possessions were conferred npun him 
with no sparing hand, in reward (or liis great 
services. On one occasion, after a gaiiant 
defence of the citadel of Kdinburgli, the 
King promised him that wherever lie should 
journey from Dumferinline towards the 
north, in one day, upon the same horse, he 
would grant bini the surrounding country to 
the extent of a mile. When, on his return 
from the performance of his task, the King 
inquired where he had left his horse, he 
answered "between the liss Ley* and the 
niair," the King, remarking that the place 
agreed with bis name, replied, " Lord Less- 
ley shalt thou be, and thy heirs after thee," 
and conlirimil tlie promised grant. JSartho- 
loinew died al an advanced age, in II-20, 
leaving a son iMalcoIni, who maintained the 
high character of his father, and whose 
descendants bore conspicuous parts in many 
of the occurrences of the eventful times in 
which tliey lived. The earldom of Hotlies 
was conferred, in 14;)7, on George Leslie, 
and has descended in a direct line to the pre- 
sent peer. \ scion of tlie ennobled house,

II. Elizabeth, m. lOtb December, 18ij, the Rev. Phillip 
Francis, A. B. of Stibbard Lod^e, in the county of 
Norfolk, and has, witli other issue, 

Phillip L'loyd, b. iith January, 1827. 

III. Martha. 

Mr. L'loyd, who lias been for upwards of fifty years a magistrate for the county of 
Norfolk, succeeded ids father, the late Colonel Richard L'loyd, of Bawdeswell Hail, in 
that county, on liis death in the year 1811, and has been e.xempted from serving as 
high sheriff for the county of Roscommon. 


The family of L'loyd of Croghan and 
Bawdeswell claims ancient descent from the 
independent Princes of Wales. Connected 
with the house of Llewllyn, aiul, collater- 
ally, with that of Tudor, like other ancient 
families of that wild and Ion;; uncon<iuered 
principality, it s<;ems lost in remote anti- 
quity. The first ancestor of whom we liave 
distinct record is 

Hrdd or Tiiinn Moi.wyvoo, who n'sided 
at Yr Heullys, in the lordship and pari>h of 
Tallyhaern. He was senescbal and iiearly 
akin to Prince David ap Owen, and was 
seized in chiif of the lordship abov<' named, 
with those of Llaiilair, Dull'ryM, IClwi;, and 
Nantraled, which his desciiidaiits lonj; en- 
joyed, and part of which are by some of 
them still possi'ssed. Tlie chief of Llanfnir 
and Dulfryn left three sons, 

I. Mjntyr, whose line b«cnme extinct. 


III. Gwrge. 
From the second son, 

G w Y i.l.o NO N', descended , 

Mki'kic Li.wyd, of Llwn-y-maen, near 
Oswestry, a frontier town of North Wales, 
" a valiant captain under the Earl of Arun- 
del, who achieved," to (piote the words of 
Pennant, "a very noble coat of arms, viz. 
the tield ardent, an ea;;le displayed witli 
two heads sable. " Of him, the cbiet of the 
name, and its first bearer in North Wales, 

SiK Gryffyth Llwyd or Lloyd, the 
direct ancestor of the house of Cropihan and 
Bawdeswell. His was the hii;h honour of 
holding the golden ewer at the baplisin of 
Edward, first I'rince of Wales, and for bis 
arms be bore the present devire of the family,

upon displayed, canton-wise, by way of aug- 
mentation.* Of the same blood came Rhys 
ap-Jenan-ap-Llewellyn ap Lloyd, esquire 
to the body of Edward IV. (as the book of 
Evan Lloyd JelVrv hath it) who with his 
cousin Pavyd ap Jenlcyn, both potent chief- 
tains, acted a turbulent part in the Lancas- 
trian wars. Omitting the long unbroken 
descent of the Deubigshire Lloyds, of Ha- 
vodunnos, during those unsettled times, we 
pass to their descendant. 

Si 11 Robert L'LOYD, of Wrexham, in Den- , 
bigshire, " a right valorous and thrysty cap- 
tain," who wedded, towards the close of the 
sixteenth century, Ann Moustine or Mostyn, 
a daughter of thiit ancient house, now enno- 
bled ill the person of the present Lord Mos- 
tyn. Sir Robert had issue, cum aliis, 
' Thomas L'LOYD,esq. who wedded Honor, 
daughter of Robert Price, esq. but the lady 
having married against the consent of her 
friends, Mr. Lloyd was induced to remove 
into the province of Ulster, in Ireland, under 
the auspices of his kinsman, the celebrated 
Sir Ralph Bingley, to whom the Crown, in 
1603, granted the manors of Strangford and 
Ardglass, with other lands in Downshire. 
On Sir Ralph's death, Mr. Lloyd removed 
to the seat of his cousin. Sir Maurrice Gryf- 
fyth, at Carrick Drumrushe, in the county 
of Leitrim, and there acquiring an estate of 
twelve hundred acres, he settled, not choos- 
ing to return into Wales, as Mrs. L'loyd's 
friends continued irreconcilable. By her 
he left five sons and three daughters, viz. 

I. Richard, ? both officers of distinction, 

II. John, 5 who perished in the field 
during the civil wars of 1641, in Ire- 
land, i. p. 

III. Owen, successor to bis father, of 
whom hereafter. 

IV. William, vi. Catharine, daughter of 
the Rev. Edward Hawkins, D.D. 

V. Benjamin, »n. a daughter of — Rey- 
nolds, esq. of the county of Leitrim. 

I. Margaret, m. first, Thomas Barton, 
esq. ancestor of the Bartons of the 
Grove, county of Tipperary, and of 
the Bartons of Clonelly, and the 
Waterfoot, in Fermanaghshire, and 
bad issue ; secondlv, LieutenantPeter 
St. George, nephew of Sir George 
St. George, of Carrick Drumrushe, 
killed by the Irish in 1641, ancestor 

* Morfydd, one of the daughters of Sir Giyf- 
fyth Llwyd, married Madoc Gloddaeth, and 
brought to him the estate of Tregarnedd, in the 
Isle of Anglesea, as her portion, in whose house 
it remained until the families Gloddaeth and Mos- 
tyn were united, and in the joint blood (now en- 
nobled as above, in the person of Lord Mostyn) 
it continued until the late Sir Thomas Blostvn 
aliened it to the late Owen Williams, esii- of An- 

of the baronets of that name in Ire- 
land, and had issue ; and thirdly. 
Lieutenant Robert Drury, of the 
county of Suffolk, and bad issue. 

II. Jane, died unmarried s. p. 

III. Elizabeth, married Captain Eras- 
mus Mathew, of Northamptonshire, 
and had, with three daughters, an 
only son, John Mathew, esq. who 
married a daughter of Sir Francis 
Gore, bart. ancestor of the Gores, 
Earls of Arran and Rosse, &c. 

Mr. Lloyd was succeeded at his death by his 
third, though eldest surviving son, 

Owen Lloyd, esq. a captain in the army. 
He was the first possessor of the Roscom- 
mon estates, in which shire he acquired three 
thousand acres, and wedded Elizabeth Fitz- 
gerald, granddaughter of Sir Luke Fitzge- 
rald, of Tyroghan, in the county Kildare, a 
grandson of the illustrious Fitzgerald, Earl 
of Kildare, direct ancestor of the ducal 
house of Leinster, and of the other noble 
branches of that family. By Miss Fitzge- 
rald Mr. Lloyd left at bis decease in the 
year 1664 three sons and three daughters, 

I. Thomas, his heir, of whom hereafter. 

II. Richard, eventual successor. 

III. Owen, a senior fellow in the Uni- 
versity of Dublin.

of the Right Rev. the Lord Bishop 
of Elphin. 

II. Honor, did unmarried. 

III. Elizabeth, m. the Rev. George 
Digby, of the same diocese. 

Captain Lloyd was succeeded by his eldest 

Thomas L'loyd, a colonel in the army, 
who was educated and learned the art of war 
in the military academy of France, and be- 
came one of the most accomplished gentle- 
men of his day. In the beginning of the 
civil wars, terminating in the expulsion of 
James II. he was chosen commander in the 
field by the Inniskillen forces (in the same 
manner that Hamilton was governor of the 
town,) and died in the year 1689, at the early 
age of 32. He married Margaret, daughter 
of Sir John Cole, bart. ancestor of the Vis- 
counts Cole, Earls of Enniskillen, but left 
no issue. Colonel Thomas Lloyd was suc- 
ceeded by his brother, 

The Honorable Richard L'loyd, a most 
eminent practitioner at the bar of England,

in Jamaica, and lord chief justice of that 
island; where he m. Mary, daughter and

This family, which has been settled fur 
nc^arly two <:enturles in the county of Pein- 
briike, derives its name from its ancient 
iiiheritaiiee,* Ilolcombe or Holtcombe, in 
the honor of Glocester, in the county of 
llevoii, where, and at Hole, in the same 
county, they, according to Sir William Pole, 
resided many descents.

Walter de Holcombe was Lord of Hoi- 
combe in l.'iol. Shortly after this period 
the family (dianged their residence to Hole, 
and anioiig the manuscripts in the possession 
of Sir Thomas Phillipps, bart. there is a 
pedigree of seven generations given of them, 
beginning with John Holcombe, who mar- 
ried Isabel Itowne, the daughter and eo- 
hiiicss of Hugh Dowiie, es(|. of Dowiie 
Ralph. By this marriage the Hobomhes 
became possessed of considerable estates, 
part of the ancient inhuritance of Dowiie 



Ralph, as well as that of the older and* 
nobler house of de la Rruer, Sir Ralph 
Dowiie, the great grandfather of Isabel 
Downe, having married Isabel de la Bruer, 
the daughter and co-heiress of Sir William 
de la Bruer, the son of the celebrated Sir 
Geoffrey de la Bruer, who was the great 
grandson of Reginald, Earl of Cornwall, the 
natural son of King Henry I. These es- 
tates remained in the family till about 1600, 
when Hole, &c. was sold (by Gilbert Hol- 
combe, the last of the family who resided in 
Devonshire) to Ellis Bartlett, and Downe 
Ralph and Tinge Bruer to Mr. Mallock. The 
marriage of Christopher Holcombe, the bro- 
ther of Gilbert Holcombe, is mentioned in 
the visitation of 1620, and in 1G60 we find 
his son William settled in Pembrokeshire, 
and in 1694, he was appointed mayor of the 
borough of Pembroke. 

John Holcombe, whomarried Miss Downe, 
was the grandfather of Roger Holcombe, 
who was living in the 19th of Edward IV. 
He was succeeded by his son Charles, who 
had issue Ellis, who married Elizabeth, the 
daughter of Thomas Sydenham, of Lynford 
Eagle, in the county of Dorset, and by her 
had issue, Thomas, who had issue, Gilbert, 
Christopher, and Josias. Christopher, from 
whom this family derive their origin, mar- 
ried an Irish lady, and by her had issue, 

» Lord William Bruer was one of the most 
powerful noblemen of his day, and enjoyed the sin- 
gular pood fortune of being the favourite of four 
successive monarchs, King Hesrv II., hing 
RiCHAnD, King John, and King Henry III. On 
King Richard's going to the Holy Land, he 
was with the bishops of Durham and Ely, and 
Hugh Bardulph, appointed to the government of 
the realm. King John granted him many manors, 
and King Hf.nrv I II. made bim sheriff over twelve 
counties. He founded the abbeys of Tor and 
Dunkeswell, the hospital of St. John's, Bridge- 
water, and the priory of Motisford ; he likewise 
built the castle of Bridgewater, made the haven, 
and began the stone bridge, which was afterwards 
completed by one Trivet.' He married Beatrix de 
Valle, supposed to be the daughter of Reginald, 
Earl of Cornwall, the natural son of King Henry I. 
as Henry, the son of Reginald, in a part of the 
manor of Karswell, calls him brother. His sons 
dying without issue, his daughters succeeded to 
his vast inheritance, one of whom married William 
de la Bruer, the great grandfather of Lady Uowne. 
Antony de la Bruer, the father of the above named 
William, held Jirge Bruer, and five knights' fees, 
in King Henry II. Tlie heirs male failed in the 
latter end of King Henry III. The heirs general 
were married unto Graas, from whom is descended 
Copleston, and unto Sir Ralph Downe, from whom 
<lescended the Strodes, of Dorsetshire, and the 
Holcombes, of Hole. 

William Holcombe, the first of the family 
who settled in Pembrokeshire, and was 
mayor of Pembroke in 1694. He died in 
1700, leaving by his wife, Miss Mears, of 
the county of Pembroke, William, who 
succeeded him, and Jane, first married to 
Mr. Nixon, secondly to Mr. Cuny.

Mr. Phillipps, who is a deputy-lieutenant and magistrate for the county of Leicester, 

succeeded his father in 1817. In 1819, after a contested election, he was chosen 

member for the county of Leicester. In 18'25, he served as high sherift' for the same 

county. In 1830, he was re-chosen knight of the shire; and since that period has 

been elected member in two successive parliaments for the northern division of the same 

county. To him Garendon is indebted for several beautiful lodges, and the forest drives 

which e.Ktend for many miles, and command from the Charnwood Hills some of the 

most extensive views in the kingdom. To the present possessor (iarendon also owes 

several fine pictures ; three of Salvator Rosa are amongst the finest and largest that 

artist ever painted. In this bouse there is beside a good collection of family portraits 

and several by .Sir Peter Lelv. 

In 1819, Mr. Phillipps assumed the arms and crest of Lisle, quartered with those 
of Phillipps and March, in right of bis motlier, Susan Lisle, dauj^hter and co-heiress

young, he travelled into Italy, where he ac- 
quired a great taste for architecture, of 
which he has left some noble specimens at 
Garendon. The magnificent gateway (an 
exact representation of Titus's arch at 
Rome), the temple and obelisk in the park, 
as well as the beautiful south front of the 
house, were all designed by him ; he also 
laid out the gardens, now so deservedly ad- 
mired, and erected at one end a Grecian 
portico, approached by an avenue of cypress 
trees. He died M.P. for the couiity of 
Leicester, which he had represented for 
fourteen years, 6th November, 1737, and 
was buried in .Shepeshed Church, where he

* Thomas March (Phillipps) was descended 
from an honourable family of the name, of French 
extraction, for several g-enerations settled in Kng- 
land, and closely connected with the family of 
Lisle. His father, Thomas March, esq. who d.

became extinct, 11th December, 1816, for

t Charles Lisle, esq. of Moyles Court, in the 
county of Hants, was the representative of a 
most noble and ancient family who were formerly 
barons of England, by the title of Lords Lisle, of 
the Isle of Wight, which dignity has been in 
abeyance since the reign of Edward IV. Regi- 
nald Lisle was one of the early benefactors of 
Garendon Abbey, founded in 1133, by Robert 
Rossu, the good Earl of Leicester, as he was 
surnamed, for the Cistercian or White Monks, 
who follow the rule of St. Benedict without miti- 
gation, and which Abbey was destroyed in 1541, 
by Henry VIU. That monarch gave it with the 
lands belonging, to Thomas, Earl of Rutland, who 
sold it to the Duke of Buckingham, and from him 
it was purchased by Sir Ambrose Phillipps, in 
168;i, in which family it has remained ever since. 
Bossu, Earl of Leicester, afterwards became a 
mnnk in Garendon Abbey, where he ended his 
days. Of this family of Lisle, we have several 
records in Camden's Britannia. The great Sir 
John Lisle, one of the twelve first knights of the 
garter, in the reign of EinvAUD UI. was Lord High 
Admiral of England, and fought in the holy wars, 
in which he greatly distinguished himself. He 
was buried in St. George's Chapel, W indsor, and 
in St. George's hall his arms are emblazoned. Of 
this family also was John Lisle, esq. one of

I. Elizabeth, b. in 1639, m. to Henry 
Parry, of Penamser, Merionethshire, 
and had issue. 
The eldest son, 

Charles Lloyd, esq. of Dolobran, b. 9lh 
December, 1637, attached himself in the 
year 1662 to George Fox and his i'ollowers, 
the founders of the Society of Friends. The 
Independents w ere at that period the domi- 
nant party, the Episcopal establishment 
being overthrown, and " The Friends" were 
as much persecuted by them as they were 
subsequently after the Restoration. It was 
at this epoch that Mr. Lloyd, having con- 
scientiously refused to take the oaths of 
allegiance and supremacy on the accession 
of Charles II., though a more loyal subject 
did not exist in the country, was at the in- 
stigation of his envious neighbour, Edward 
Lord Herbert of Cherbury, who desired his 
estates, subjected to great persecutions and 
losses. His possessions were put under 
premunire, his cattle sold, and his mansion 
at Dolobran partially destroyed. Although 
a magistrate for Montgomeryshire, and in 
nomination for its shrievalty at the time, 
the penal and oppressive laws against sec- 
tarians (arising from the excesses of some) 
were enforced against Mr. Lloyd with uii- 



mitigated rigour.* He was taken, with seven 
otiier j;iMitlL'ni('n, wlio had embraced the 
doctrines of the ** Friends/' to Welshpool 
jail, and confined there until the act of 
Jamks II, was passed, releasing all persons 
detained for religious opinions, a period of 
ten years. His daughter Elizabeth mariied

Charles Lloyd died. He m. first, llth No-

• " In the beginning of the year 1682 my dear 
friend, Charles IJoyd, and 1 went to visit friends 
in Herefordshire, VVorcestershive, &c. Sec. and 
came through their meetings to London before 
the yearlv meeting. I acquainted my friends, 
Geort;e Whitt'iiead ;itid \V. I't-nn, that. 1 intended 
to go to lord Hide t*) acknowli'd^f iils kindness 
for his letter, on my behitU", to liislioi) Lloyd. 
Georjje \V hitehead said there was some service to 
be done for our sufiering friends in liristol, and it 
was thouffht convenimit that three of tiie city and 
three of the country should ^o with the said suf- 
ferings, and desire tlie kindness of Lord Hide to 
present them to the king. The tliree friends for 
the country were Charles Lloyd, Thomas Wynne, 
and myself; for the city, George W hitehead, 
Alexander Parker, and one more. Our friend 
George Whitehead told me that our countryman, 
Sir Lionel Jenkin, secretary of state, was so cross 
and ill-humoured, that when tlie king was inclined 
to moderation and tenderness to sulfering hiends, 
he often stopped and hindered the relief intended 
them. When we went to Whitehall, we waited 
a long time before we could speak witii tlieni, 
they being upon n committee a considerable time ; 
but wo had sent in by the door-keeper to acipiaint 
Lord Hide that we were there, and in time they 
Bent for us in. The secretary looked o;rini upon 
U8. I went to Lord Hide, and acknowled^'ed 
his kindness for his letter on my behalf to the 
bishop. He told me that I should tell the bishop 
there would be liberty of conscimice in England. 
I told him, I did say so, and did believe it 
would be so in God's time. Secretary Jeukin 
spoke in a scornful manner, and asked me what 
was Welch for a Quaker, I answered him Crynur 
Crynwyr, it being the singular and plurul num- 
ber, hut the secretary said, we had no Welch 
for it, for there wore no (junkers in the Romans' 
days. iMv friend Charles Lloyd answered, ' If 
thou didst ask my friend the ipiestion arij^dit, he 
faiilh answered thee ri-^ht, fur there is Kni;lisli, 
Welch, Liitin, (ireek, and Hebrew for a Quaker.' 
So the secretary said, * Sir, 1 understand Welch 
pretty well, and English and I-atin and Greek ; 
but if you go to your Hebrew, I know not what 
to 8uy to you,* I left my friend ('. Lloyd to en- 
gat^e with this peevish countryman, and presitnted 
Lord Hide with a long list of names of men, wo- 
men, and children, in llieir several prisons at 
Bristol. 1 clesired him to ))e so kind as to present 
their suflerings to the king, which ho said he 
would, and our friend George W hitehead spoke 
ftrthtfr to him. Then 1 turned to the secretory.

gust, IG(i2, who died 2Ist January, 

who directed his words to me, and spoke to him 
thus in Welch : 

*' ' Mae yn ddrwg p^ennif, fod vu o Hiliogaeth

Gristianogol yn gyntaf yd Loeger yn erbyn yr 
rhai sydd gwedi derbyn y wir Gristianogol Gre- 
fydd yr awr hon.' 

'* The English is thus : 

*• ' I am sorry that one of the stock of the an- 
cient Britons, who first received the christian faith 
in England, should be against those who have 
received the true Christian faith in this day.' 

*' He replied. He was not against our triends, 
but he said our friends gave their votes for the 
election of parliament men that were against the 
king's interest. I told him, It was our birthright, 
as we were freeholders and burgesses, to elect men 
([ualiHed to serve botli the king and country, but 
how they were corrupted, when they came within 
tliese walls, I knew not. The secretary would 
have engaged farther with me in disjiute about 
reliv^ion. 1 told him he was an ancient man, and 
that they had been a long time there upon their 
business, and if he would be pleased to dismiss 
us then, and appoint what time we should some 
morning wait up(tn him, we would, if he pleased, 
s])end an hour or two with him in discourse about 
reli^-^ion. Upon which he took otV his hat, and 
thanked me kindly for my civility ; but we heard 
no more of him about the dispute. Upon the 
whole, our friend (!. W hitehead told me he was 
more moderate to friends afterwards than he had 
been before. The number ol" prisoners in the 
list delivered to Lord Hide to be presented to 
the kinj; amounted to in both ]>risons one hundred 
and tliiity-nine, of which there were ei<;hteen 
aped women from sixty and upwards, and eight 
chddren. In the latter end of the list it was said, 
' lUessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain 
mercy.' "

years at least devastated the fair fields of

was a person of considerable importance iii 
the time of James 11. and from the following 
facts mentioned by his son, the Right Hon. 
Edward Hopkins, was an active opponent of 
the court, and promoter of the revolution. 

" in the year 1607," says Edward Hop- 
kins, "whilst the queen was at Bath (the oc- 
casion of which jorney thither the year fol- 
lowing, gave such a suspicion of indirect 
practices to the nation, by the birth of the 
pretender) King James made a progress 
througli a part of the kingdom, and lay at 
my father's house, where, the morning after 
his arrival, public mass was said in the great 
dining room, where I was present at the late 
celebration of it, my age screening from 
any observation in ray behaviour by those 
who attended the service. The next act of 
devotion was touching for the king's evil, by 
his majesty, in our great church ; the king 
was very gracious to my father, though he 
had been some time before (during Mon- 
mouth's rebellionf) distinguished as a malig- 

t The report from the municipal authorities of 
Coventry-, shows the great interest which Wr. 
Hopkins took in the affairs of the Uuke of Mon- 

Coventry, 9th September, 1682. 

My Lord, — The Uuke of Monmouth's coming 
here gives us this occasion to present your lord- 
ship with this account following, of the manner of 
his receiition, and what past thereupon ; and first 
we must crave leave to begin at Saturday, the 2nd 
instant, which morning, at the post house in this 
citty, was tlie Lord Colchester, who then be- 
spoake fourteen post horses for his grace his use, 
to be ready on Fryday morning, the 8th of this 
instant September. In order to liis grace his re- 
ception, a feast was prepared, and was on Thurs- 
day last at the Starre Inn, in this citty, where 
most or all of the most considerable dissenters dined, 
and stayed his grace his coming, being introduced 
by Mr. Hopkins our late burgess, who went to Da- 
ventry to meet him, and brought him to toune 
about nine at night, the bells ' then jjingiug and 
some bonfii-es lighted in his way. He ahghted at. 



naiit, disarmed and confined to his honse, at 
the same time the prisons being filled nitli 
those of lesser rank. It was intimated to my 
father by some oC the |)ri]Ki|ial lords of the 
court, tliat the king was disposed to shew him 
some public mark of favor, but lie with du- 
tyfulness and decency declined." 

"At the latter end of the year 1688, 
the Prince of Orani;e landing in the west, 
and Prince (ieorge of Denmark going to 
liim, his Princess, Anne, the king's young- 
est daughter, was put under coutinenient at 
St. James's, from which place, having con- 
certed measures with Dr. Compton, Bishop 
of London, and others, she made her escajie 
in th(! Uiiddle of the night, and coaches be- 
ing provided and stationed in a i)ro|)er 
place without one of the gates of the city, 
she made long jorneys, taking no more rest 
than was absolutely necessary till she reached 
Nottingham, there she was joined by Lord 
Devonsliire, nniny other lords and gentle- 
men of note, of those counties who had not 
the opportunity to appear in arms for the 
I'rince of Orange. Her Koyal Highness's 
numbers much increasing, and this body 
being chii'lly under the command of Lord 
iJevoiishire ami the Hishop of London, 
she made but a short stay at Nottingham, 
and from thence came to Coventry to my 
father's house, where, during her sojourn 
part of three days, slie received an account 

the Starre, where the jiartie were met, tJie chiefe 
of tliem attended him in liiscb;inil)er, where, luok- 
in;^ about and seeing no other i^entltMuen, his grace 
SJtedouiie andsayd littltMnore than tiiat he thought 
there hud bin sonic gentlemen in this citty. .Soone 
alter his arrivall, the other streets were tilled with 
bonfires, and jierticularly one beginning at the 
cross, which Aiderman Nathaniell ilarrinian per- 
ceiving, went and threw downe the fagotts, dis- 
percing the company, charging them in the king's 
nanu* peaceably to depart ; but thev soon rallved, 
anil began a second bontire lower in tlie same 
street, which the said alderman likewise put out, 
and connnanded them agaiae to depart in peace, 
but tiioy flocked about him, shouting, a .Monmouth 
— no ^ orko ! and some offered violence to hini, 
but he defended himseli'e so that he had n<it much 
hurt ; .so bkewise a third and fourth lire he extin- 
^u.sht. It so happened that -Mr. .Maiorwas nc»t at 
home till eleven nt ni'^ht, when hearing of this 
disorder, he cnme to the alderman at tlie cross, 
where ihere was a (ire and rabble, whom they 

\\ e must not omit to tell your lordship, that 
Wedne.sdav last being our couucill-liuuse day, some 
members thereof moved themuior that an entertain- 
ment might be ordered in the nanu< u( the corjiora- 
tion for his grace, but Mr..Maior refused, as alsudid 
some of his brethren, so nothing wa.ntlone. Never-, on 'I hnrsday lught, tlioso other, (viz) 
Alderman Xavlour, Alderman Fnmcis Ifarnman, 
Alderman Lapworth. Mr. Owen, and Mr. 
Tenre, who in in nomination for the ensuing mnior, 
orderwl a citty officer to bring n present of wine, 

by express that the king, who was before 
fled from Salisbury Plain to London, had 
abandoned the city upon the Prince of 
Orange marching towards it, as bis majesty 
did afterwards out of the kingdom. U[)Oii 
this Princess Anne set forward for London, 
and that very night the false, but memorable, 
alarm, which was at the same time spread 
all over the kingdom, reached us, that the 
king's Irish army of papists was destroying 
all by fire and sword, and such was the 
panick that every one believed ihey were at 
the next town. The confusion was so visi- 
ble in every countenance, that it was no 
wonder I had the most dreadful apprehen- 
sions, and it was by the whole family in- 
creased, by my father's being absent, for he 
was gone to escort the princess a day or two 
on her joriiey to London."

This eminent person, who, as stated above, 
filled the important office of secretary of

resting manuscript entitled "Travels of the 
Right Hon. Edward Hopkins, written by 
himself, for the amusement of his descend- 
ants." From tliis MS. we are enabled to 
extract an account of the grand entry of the 
Earl of Portland, Kinr/ William's first am- 
bassador into Paris, and of a singular dilem- 
ma in which some of the leading English in

The Bacons of Friston were a distinguished

in lineal descent, from

Bacon, the lord keeper. Sir Francis wedded the

the suite were subsequently placed by the 

" It was near two months after the arrival 
of my Lord Portland, before he made his 
public entry, which was most magnificent. 
Tlie procession was from the hotel Ram- 
boiiillet to the Hotel des Ambassadeurs, 
where his excellency, and all of us of his 
suite, were sumptuously treated at the King 
of France's expense, for three days. It hap- 
pening in the time of Lent, to observe strictly 
the ordinances of holy church, no flesh was 
allowed. It was wonderful to see such a 
number and such a variety of dishes without 
it, the height of French cookei-y. Several 
diflerentsoupes, fricasys, and ragouts offish, 
so disguised as might well deceive either the 
eye or the pallet. 

" I never yet in one day, nor ever can 
again see such a number of people together, 
as lined the streets of Paris the day of the 
entry. The procession had near three miles 
to make. Tlie windows were taken away, 
and as the streets are regular and the houses 
of several stories, it was an agreeable sight 
to see, upon turning into a street, so many 
rows like garlands appearing, the houses 
being mostly filled by ladies. The gentle- 
men were mostly in, upon, or about the 
coaches, of which there were a continued 
line on each side of the streets, near the 

"The ambassador had five or six eoaches of 
his o%vn, of great price and exquisite taste, 
though the French thought they had not 
enough, the appearance of state not having 
sufficient of that gawdiness, gilding, and 
carving on the outsides, which they affect on 
such occasions ; not considering that all was 
of a-piece, both without and within, magni- 
ficent with elegance, and costly, both as to 
the painting, carving, gold lace, fringe, &c. 
" In the cortage there was one magnificent 
chariot, drawn by a set of fine Napolitan 
horses, of a lively grey colour, beautiful 
creatures, and highly managed; their har- 
ness, reins, and ribbons on their manes were 
orange colour, which had an agreeable effect. 
His excellency made a present afterwards of 
these horses, of which I think he had eight, 
to the King of France. 

"A matter happened a little before the 
entry, which caused a small fracas, and em- 
barrassed the ambassador. Before that mi- 
nister's coaches there are those of the French 
ministers, and of all the princes and prin- 
cesses of the blood (then very numerous), 
to attend the entries. A very few days 
before, a list appeared at the hotel, allotting 
us all to the coaches we were to be in, to 
avoid confusion, in which it appeared that 
some Dutch of the first quality, and two or 
three deputies from the principality of 
Orange, had provision made for them. This, 
as it was an Englisli embassy, gave an alarm. 



anil caused a great dispute. A meeting 
hereupon was appointed that evening, at a 
tavern, when the greater part attended. I 
own I was one of the number of tlie muti- 
neers. It was then resolved that we could 
not assist at the entry unless this matter was 
rectified, and afterwards application was 
made to Mr. Prior, to acquaint liis excel- 
lence tlierewith, in tlie most respectful man- 
ner. Satisfaction was given, how much soever 
against the grain, but it was impossible to 
adhere to so wrong a judged scheme, so that 
we saw those gentlemen that day not as 
actors but spectators. 

" There was another difficulty with respect 
to the Duke of Argyle, then, "in his fatlier's 
lifetime, Lor<l Loriie : he objected to the 
rank given liim in company uitli our lords 
(for the union was not then made); lie claimed 
his place, however, according to the antient- 
ness of his family, urging that the embassy 
was from Scotland as well as from England, 
the King being King of both. The matter 
was too nice and delicate for my lord ani- 
bas.sador to decide in favour of his claim, so 
he de(rlincd to attend. 

"The regard paid to A'ihc/ William's first 
embassy was so great, the orders given were 
so positive from the court of Versailles to 
the people of that of St. (Jerraain's not to 
insult the English, ami they were so well 
observed, that no disorder happened, though 
we daily met in the same cofl'ee-liousr, which 
was the resort of all ICuglisli gentlemen : tlie 
common civility of salutes passed, but very 
t'uw of us mixed with them at the same tables 
or in conversation. 

" ^"'.'/ Jamks'.s Queen came, according to 
her custom, to perform her devotions and 
pass the holy week at the Convent of Nuns, 
at Charllot, near Paris, whither one day the 
pretended Prince of Wales came to dine 
with her, of which I was advertised by one 
of their court, who had married my aunt, the 
widow Liidy Carteret, sister to my mother. 
I enibraced this opportunity of satisfying the 
curiosity I had to see a person 1 had from 
his birth heard, and was likely to hear so 
much talk of, since I might view him, as in- 
cognito, upon his taking coach. I took a 
friend with me, and we found several Eng- 
lish and others there, who had received the 
same notice, and who had the same c-uriosity. 
An incident happened there which put seve- 
ral of us under an unhappy dilemma, <Mlher 
of a seeming afl'ront to him, which was not 
desirable nor becoming, or else to do an act 
both contrary to the laws of our country, and 
to our own principles. We were (beini; of 
difTercnt nations) (ifty or sixty in number, 
ranged in a long and spacious entry, through 
which he was to to tiikn coach. I'pon 
Ilia coming out of the door of the convent, 
altendt'd by the Earl of Melforl, one of their 
chief minister*, they had not gone many sipps 

before that lord, seeing two English gentle- 
men of good families and considerable estates 
in the entry, stopped the pretended Prince, 
and in a manner presented them to him. 
Whatever their inidiiiations might be, it 
drew them into a difficulty, but upon this 
surprise they kissed his hand. We who 
were nearer to the court-yard made our 
retreat with some precipitation, choosing 
rather to be liable to their observation of it, 
than to run the risk of sufl'ering under the 
like embarrassment, not knowing but as En- 
glishmen, the gracious compliment might 
liave been otl'ered to us all. This was an 
egregious folly in Melfort, as my uncle 
afterwards allowed and blamed him for it, 
since it exposed these gentlemen, whose in- 
clinations we knew were towards that court, 
and their visits to the ambassador were only 
such as decency recpiired : however this 
faux pas discovered that they had paid court 
to and were accpiainted with Melfort, which 
otherwise might still have been a secret. I 
cannot but observe that I afterwards sat in 
liarliament with one of these persons several 
years, being a knight of a great shire, and 
chose by the high church for the security of 

the Protestant religion The next 

morning Mr. Prior came into my chamber 
and asked me how I had slept after com- 
niittiiig treason. I said I was guilty of none. 
Now, says he, you will pretend that you did 
not kiss hands at Charllot .' I answered 
with a smile, that I found he had good intel- 
ligence. Well, says he, I know you did 
/lut, but such did ; can you deny it .' If you 
know it I need not turn informer, and shall 
be mute upon these interrogatories. Yes, 
says he, I know who did, and the King will 
know it as soon as the next courier gets to 
London. In a eoiirt of beggars a minister 
can never want spies, and there was nothing 
done at St. (Jermain's that was long a secret."

of accompanying the ambassador on a visit

protected his royal master at the celebrated 
battle of Hastings by bearing a slout shield 
before him ; from wlii<di circumstance, the 
French woril " Kscne" fa shield) was added 
to the original surname of " Forte," and 
thus gave FoKTEsi IF.. From this warrior, 
through a long line of eminent personages, 
a direct inali- descent is brought down to 
the present period, but as we have given

Reginald Heber, succeeded him. He 
married, in 1558, Anne, daughter of John de

when he entered his pedigree.* He was 
proprietor of the estates of West and East 
Marton, lord of the manor, and patron of

Sir Harris is the author of many valuable works connected with the History and 
Peerage of England. A late number of the Quarterly Review (April, 1836), in 
its comments on one of these, " The Scrope and Grosvenor Roll," tlius concludes 
its remarks : " ^leantime his (Sir Harris Nicolas's) eli'orts for the reform of the

Previous to obtaining the attested docu- 
ments from France, with the genealogy of 
their ancestors, the representative of the 
family in England, Captain John-Harris 
Nicolas, received a grant of arms from the 
Heralds' College, in the year 1816 ; as 
follows : 

" Gironny of eight, argent and azure, an 
eagle displayed erminois : On a chief, wavy 
(in allusion to the services of Captain Nico- 
las, and Captain Toup Nicolas) ermine, a 
trident, or, surmounted in saltire of a flag- 
staflF, proper, thereon, hoisted, a pennant 
gules, both passing through a chaplet of 
laurel, vert." 

Crest — A demi-eagle, sable, wings ele- 
vated, erminois, each charged with a cross, 
couped, gules, issuing from a naval crown, 

And, ou the 16th of October, 1816, Cap- 
tain Toup Nicolas received the following 
augmentation to the above crest : " The 
word ' Pilot,' inscribed on the rim of the 
naval crown, to be borne by him and his 
descendants, in commemoration of his dis- 
tinguished services in his majesty's sloop 
Pilot, on the East and West coasts of Cala- 
bria, during the years 1810, 1811, and 
1812; and also in allusion to the gallant

majesty's said sloop, and the French na- 
tional ship Lrt ief/ece, of twenty-eight guns, 
and three hundred men, on the 17th of June,

The family of Were, or, as it was for- 
merly spelt, Wkaue, is of great antiquity in 
the counties of Devon and Somerset. Tra- 
dition states, that their original name was 
GiFFAKD, a younger branch, it is repre- 
sented, of the GlFFARDS of BltlGHTLEY, and 
Halswortiiy ; and that they took the name 
of Weare only, upon inheriting that part of 
the property of the lionse of Giffard called 
Weahe-Giffaud ; whereupon, as was the 
custom at that period, they assumed dilTerent 
arms. How far this statement is correct, it 
is impossihie at this distant date to establish, 
but these facts have been asserted by autho- 
rities entitled to consideration. Certain it is, 
however, that the family of Weare, or, as 
now spelt. Were, is of long standing in So- 
mersetshire, as well as in Devonshire, and 
the arras annexed have been used by the 
existing brancli, whose genealogy we now 
give, for many generations, as various en- 
gravings of them on old seals, plate, &c. 
still in possession of it.s diB'erent members, 
fully confirm. Those arms are to be found 
in the third edition of " Guillim's Heraldry," 
published in Ui:iH, and again in tlie edition 
published in 1C79, wherein it is stated, at 
page 206, " He beareth, argent, on a bend 
vert, between six cross croslets (itched, gules, 
three croysiers, or, by the name of Weare, 
of Devon, and is quartered by Fortescue of 
Filley," (the ancestor of the present Earl 
Fortescue.) " This coat standeth in Weare 
church in com: prtrdict. The estate of 
Weare-Giftanl. it is believed, passed to the 
family of Deynsell, by the marriage of an 
heiress of the house of Weare, between the 
years 1440 and I4.')0, and it was carried to 
that of Fortescue about the year )4H0, by 
the heiress of Deynsell. li\ ii collection of 
abstracts of early'charters in the library of 
Sir Kichard Phillips, hart, there is a deed 
relating to the lainily of Weare, of the con- 
cluding part of which the following is a cor- 
rect translation : 

" This Indenture made at Weare-Gif- 
" tard, between William de Sallem 
"on the one part, aiul William 
" W EAliE, Lord of W care-C.illard, on 
" the other part, 

"anno I;), Henry IV." (141 1) 
J'- S. signed, " Will: Weare." 

The arms attached to tills deed are precisely 
the .same as thosi? now used by the fainily as 
herein described, but (he crest, instead of 
being a demi lion, holding » cross crosslet, 
fltchee, is a bmhrt of fish. We are unable 
at this moment to go further back with (he 
genealogy, than to 

Tii(iM\s Were, eldest surviving son of 
Robert Weare, esq. of Sampford Arnnd.ll, 
ill the coiiiiiy of Devon, who, it appears, 
•'■pelt his iiami in the aneieiit style. 

Thomas Weare,* his son, however, wrote 
it in the modern mode, which has been 
continued by his descendants. He resided 
at Wellington in the beginning of the last 
century, and was possessed of the lands of 
" Great and Little Sowdeii," " the West 
Leigh Estates," " Old Baums," " Escotts," 
" Osmonds," " Penslade," and other pro- 
perty in the county of Devon ; together with 
the manor of " Runnington," " Landcox," 
" Uockwell-Green," " Perry-Elm," " Jur- 
ston," and other estates in the county of So- 
merset. He married about the year 1716, 
Elizabeth, daughter of Peter Berry, esq. 
and had issue eight sons, between whom 
he divided his ditferent estates, and three 
daughters, viz. 

I. Robert, of Runnington Manor, of 
whom presently. 

• Thomas \Vere'.s second brother was Peter 
Were, esq. of Sampford Arundel and Were's Cot, 
near Welliiij^toii, whose son Ellis was a partner in 
the firm of Curtis, Were, Robarts and Co. bankers 
in London. EUis's descendants are 'I'homas, of 
Were's Cot, and Samj)ford Arundel, who is mar- 
ried and has seven children, Robert, Peter, and 
J osepiu 

Tliomas Were had also one sister, Ehzabetli, 
who m. George Fox, of Perran, near Falmouth. 

Tlie greater part of the difterent branches of the 
family of Were, together with most of those of their 
several alliances, have for many generations be- 
longed lo the Society of Friends, of which liighly 
respectable sect, very many of them still are m'em- 

Another branch of the ancient family of Were 
became settled in the vicinity of Plymouth about 
the year 1700, by a marriage with Joan, daughter 
and at length sole heir of John Reid, esq. of Bur- 
riiiglon. in Devonshire. The son of tliis marriao-e, 
John Were, esi|. of ISurrington, who died hi 1778, 
left the whole of his properly to his only child 
and heiress iMary, who wedded Kichard Hall

which still retain the original orthography

They also appear to have used the arms as 
annexed, for many generations, as is to be 
seen on various old monuments in the parish 
cliurch of Goodrick. Of this branch the 
present representative is Lieutenant-colonel 
Thomas Weare, of Hampton Bishop, in tlie 
county of Hereford, knight of the Royal 
Hanoverian Guelphic Order, and a magis- 
trate for the said county, (at present com- 
manding the provisional battalion at Chat- 
ham,) only son of the late Rev. Thomas 
Weare, of Jesus College, Oxford, who re- 
sided, and was a distinguished preacher, in 
that university for many years, and des- 
cended from the Weares of Manox, and 
Giddis Court, in the county of Hereford ;

deputy-lieutenant, and has .served the office of sheriff. 



In the early part of tlie ITtli renturv, 
several members of the Lucas family mi- 
grated from England and settled in the 
sister island, where their descendants still 
remain, in the counties of Clare, Cork, 
King's County, and Monaghan. In the' 
last named they acquired, partly by pur- 
chase and partly by royal grant, consider- 
able estates, which were erected into a 
manor by patent of Chakles II., in 16B;j, 
" to be called the manor of Castle Shane," 
and the principal part of which has ever since 
continued in the family.

MULLOY, COOTE, esq. of Hug^hstown, in the county of Roscommon, chief and 
representative of the ancient Milesian family of O'Mulloy, 
** Standard Bearers to the Crowne of England in Ireland,'* 
m. in 1799, Mary, eldest daughter of William Lloyd, esq. 
of Rockville, in the same county, and has issue, 

CooTE, in holy orders, who wedded Alicia, eldest dau. 
of the late Robert King Duke, esq. of New Park, in 
the county of Sligo, and has two sons, 


Mr. MuUoy succeeded his father in 1S25. He is a magis- 
trate and deputy-lieutenant for the county of Roscommon. 


The family of O'Mulloy,* of acknow- 
ledged Milesian descent, enjoys the heredi- 
tary honor of standard-bearer to the crown 
of England in Ireland. It derives from 

* The following are some curious particulars re- 
lative to the early members of the family- 

Upon the death of O'Hethe, Girald Barry (com- 
monly called Cambrensis, archdeacon of St. Da- 
vid's) having refused the see (that of Ferns) fi-om 
John, Earl of Morton (aftervrards king), Albin 
O'Mulloy was elected. He was first a monk, and 
afterwards Abbot of Baltinglass, and appears to ' 
have been a zealous but intemperate man. He 
had a very angry dispute with Cambrensis in 
Mid-lent 1185. It was as follows : 

John Comin (the Ai bishop) having convened 
a synod in Christchurch, preached himself the first 
day on the Sacraments. On the second day, Albin 
O'Mulloy (Abbot of Baltinglass, afterwards Bishop 
of Ferns) preached on clerical strictness of morals; 
whereon he inveighed bitterly against the English 
clergy, who came into Ireland, and bv their evil 
examples had vitiated the probity and innocence 
of the clergy of Ireland, wlilch drew upon him 
Cambrensis the moment he had ended. 

Albin engag'ed in a far more serious and reason- 
able contest with William Marshal, Earl of Pem- 
broke, who hud forcibly disseised him of two 
manors belonging to bis bishoprick. The earl 
being contumacious died under excommunication, 
and in 1220 the bishop went to London to com- 
plain of the injury done to the church. The king 
commanded him to go to the earl's tomb and ab- 
solve him, and promised he would endeavour to 
obtain him satisfaction from the young Earl Wil- 

Whereupon the bishop, accompanied by the 
kinp;, (Henry III ) went to the i^rave, and said, 
*' O William, that here liest wrapjied in the bonds 
of excommunication, if what thou hast injuriously 
taken be restored by the king, or thy heirs, or thy 
friends, with competent satisfaction, I absnlte 

O'NiALL, of the nine hostages. Monarch of 
ALL Ireland, A. D, 371, characterized as 
" one of the most gallant of all the princes 
of the Milesian race." 

thee; otherwise, I ratify the sentence ; that being 
wrapped in thy sins, thou raayest remain damned 
for ever ! " 

The king was displeased with the rigour of the 
bishop, but could not prevail with the young earl 
to restore the manors. Tlie young earl and his 
four brothers died afterwards, without issue male, 
and the superstitious people thought it to be the 
effect of the excommunication. Our prelate died 
at an advanced age about the close of the year 
1222, having governed the see of Ferns thirty-six - 

Curious circumstances attending the election of 
two knights of the shire, to serve in parliament 
for the King's County, which election took place 
20th April, 1613. • 

Desiderata Curiosa Hibernica, vol. i. p. 349. 
The freeholders assembled in Philipstown to 
elect knights, and some of the Irish having con- 
sulted together the same morning, attended the 
sheriff to the shire-house, between eight and nine 
o'clock, where the writ being read, Sir Francis 
Rushe, and Sir Adam Loftus, (ancestor of the 
first Viscounts Ely), were propounded bv some 
of the freeholders as the fittest men to be elected. 
But Philip ODagan delivered to the sheriff two 
several lists of names in jiaper, who (he said) had 
given their names for " Sir John Mac Coughlan 
and Callagh O'Mulloy," whom they had chosen 
already, and would have none others ; and upon 
delivering the list, they cried out" Mac Coughlan 
and O'Mulloy!" The other side, to the number 
of sixteen, gave their votes puhliclu for Sir F, 
Rushe and Sir A. Loftus. The under-sheriff re- 
ceived the papers, and made up the indentures for 
Mac Coughlan and O'Mulloy, (having the greatest 
number of names in the I'tst), which indentures 
were accepted by the high-sheriff j yet, notwith- 



Niall, whose desiofiiatioii " of the nine hos- 
faijes " arose from his haviiijr nine captive 
princes at tlie same time in liis keeping,

The Mulloy or O'iNIiilloy family is conse- 
quently of the Heremonean line, and enti- 
tled to the (listineti\(' appellation of Hfj- 
Nia/ls; a title which in Irish history exclu- 
sively belongs to the discendaiits of Nial/, 
the (heat, and claims for its possessors the 
liighest station amonf;st the distinguished 
families of Ireland.* 

The ancient territory of this family, viz. 
Fei-iall,f (now comprchendini; the haronies 
of Eglish and ISallyboy, in the King'scounty) 
was in their possession from the Tjth century 
until /u)i</ iiflir the invasion of the English 
in 1179; in fad, until ahout the year 1(>41, 
the period of the {jrcat rfbcllion: for in the 
proclamation of attainder, which followed 
the failure of Roger Moore's insurrection, 
we see enumerated anujngst his principal 
abettors the names of Art. O'Mulloy, of 
Kalhlin Castle, aiul Owen O'Mulloy, ol 
Clonkeene Gastle.J 

In the " Desiderata Cnriosa Hiheriiica," 
(\ol. ii. p. ,V2.) the territory of Fcrcall is 
slated to have been 4!>,2;J5 acres in ex- 
tent. A recent writer of high respectability 
in the " Beauties of Ireland," observes, 
"that there are still in the King's County 
some respi'ctable families belonging to the 
Sept of O'Mulloy, and the ruins of many 
ancient castles attest their former conse- 
quence and dignity." In "Slater's Itine- 
rary," (King's County), as well as in the 
writer above named, we find the following 

standing, he returned Sir A. Loftug and Sir F. 
Uushc, alleginp " tliut the ({"'atest number of 
voices ijivi'n /uiWir/u were for tliem. In which 
proreedinj,' on tlio part of iMilc (.'oughliui and 
O'AIuIloy we find this miscnrrinjfe, that two gen- 
tlunien whose nuineri were returned in the list, 
upon the reading, disavmvid ihe Hame, and suh- 
scrihed the other part. Some other aUo confesHed

»ent, gave ln.s voice by ;)ri>ii/ to the «uid IMnc 
Coughlan and U'Mulloy, which U'MuUoi) cannot 
speak Kti/^tUh ! 

This di'firinncy was not unroniinon amongst the 
magnates of the land, for we read that amongst 
other articles of ngn'enu'nl by whiili Miinough 
O'lJrien, I'rnice of 'Ibomrind, obtained (in .lune, 
l.Vt.')) tlie favour of Aiii/; lliMiv \lll., who cre- 
ated bim in the same year Karl of Thomnnd, la*

enumerated, as some of the caslks here 
alluded to : 

1. Geslid Castle. 

2. Erry Castle (ruins). 

3. Lemaiiagh Castle. 

4. Broghill Castle. 

5. Rathliu Castle. 

6. Clonkeene Castle, &c. &,c. 
Surnames were first given to distinguish 

families by Brian Boiroimhe, (the hero of 
the celebrated battle of Clontarf). The 
practice was then borrowed by the Germans, 
French, and Italians. § The name of Mulloy 
is derived from the Irish words " MiiUuaiili 
nil IakiIi" i.e. " t/ie front of the buttle "\\ 
aiul this brave clan, by their unwearied op- 
position to the English in defence of their 
hereditary dominions, while a tenable posi- 
tion remained, abuiulaiitly proved that they 
merited the appellation. Kor a space of 
4H4 years, that is from 1 172 (when the Eng- 
lish first got possession of the island) to 
l.j.')7, (the ;3rd of PiiiLil" and Mauv), they 
maintained their independence against the 
invaders. Indeed, ai'cording to Sir Janu-s 
\\ are, they were in opposition to the Eng- 
lish government at a later period, for soon 
alter the appointment of .Sir Henry .Sidney, 
as sole lord juslice, we Iind, to use the words 
of .Sir .lames, tt "he directed his colours 
against Arthur O'Mulloy, Lord of Fercally, 
who harboured rebels and began new fac- 
tions, and a great part of that country being 
burned and plundered, he conferred the 
lordship on Theobald Mulloy, Arthur's bro- 
ther, who gave his sou as a pledge that he 
should be faithful to the queen." It may 
have been that peculiar severity was exer- 
cised by .Sir Henry Sidney against this clan, 
inasmuch as their chief had. according to 
the authority of the ahove-mentioiu'd his- 
torian, " sworn alleffiiinee in the preceding 
year, 1557, to the queen, and givi^n pledges," 

bring up their children in the same." (Vide 
Lodge's I'eerage, Loinhin edition, I7.)4"). 

And we further read (in the same work, vol. ii. 
p. j'.'j) that in April, l.i76, tlie Lord Deputy Sid- 
ney, in his account to the lords of the council of 
the state of nflnirs in the province of Connaiight, 
infonns them, that Mac William Kwghter (Sir 
Uichard Hourke, ancestor to the Karls of Mavo, 
elected Lord iMac William Ougbter in l-iii'J) 
" very iviljingly came in to him," and '• I found 
him," says he, " verv sensible, though wanting the 
Englitli tongue, yet understanding the Latin," &c.

being caused so to do by Tliomas Radcliffe, 
Earl of Sussex, then lord lieutenant of Ire- 
land. Indeed we are told by Sir James 
Ware, that fifteen years previously, namely 
1541, " almost all the fireat ones of the Irisli 
extraction did likewise submit themselves 
to the Lord Deputy St. Leger, and took the 
oath of alle<;iance, as O'CarroU, O'Moore, 
O'Mu/toy, O'Conor, &c. &c." 

In the " Desiderata Curiosa Hibernica," 
(p. 63), we find it stated as follows : " The 
natives tu be tied upon a jiroviso of forfeiture, 
neither to take upon them any Irish names 
of scigno7-y, as O'Kooke, O'MuUoy, &c. &c. 
&c. nor set up, nor assist any to usurp these 
names ; " so jealous were the English of the 
hereditary claims and dignities by which 
the Milesian dynasts evidenced the supe- 
riority of their rig;hts, over those which the 
former, as settlers, merely derived from 

In that rare and invaluable MS. entitled, 
" Annals of the Four Masters," which has 
never been but partiaUij translated into 
English, and which is deposited in the library 
of the Royal Irish Academy, a very curious 
list is to be found of all the chiefs of the 
great Milesian families who were entitled 
to attend the parliament of the whole king- 
dom in the year 1585. This is a remark- 
able period in Irish history, no other than a 
Pale Parliament having been previously 
held in Ireland. In this list Conall O'Mul- 
loy (the then chief of Fercall) is expressly 
mentioned. Conall subsecpiently surren- 
dered his lands to Queen Elizabeth, and 
had a re-grant thereof by patent in 1590. 
A younger son of this ancient Sept, 

Capt. Anthony Mulloy (thirty-third in 
descent from Frachada, son of Niall of the 
nine hostages, and tenth from Hugh Mor, 
or Great O'Mulloy, lord of the territory of 
Fercall, chief of his name) emigrated to the 
county of Roscommon in the early part of 
Elizabeth's reign, and d. 20th July, 1603. 
Tradition affirms that Capt. Anthony Mulloy 
was sent into Connaught with powers but 
little inferior to those of the president of 
that province, and he is sometimes erro- 
neously mentioned as the president himself. 
It is likely he was provost marshal, as he is 
constantly depicted in the most sanguinary 
colours. This office was some years after 
licld by Sir Charles Coote, father of the 
first Earl of Mountrath. 

Capt. Anthony Mulloy (commonly called 
(ireen Mulloy, from the colour of his uni- 
form) procured a large grant of land, in- 
cluding the manor of Urthaheera (now 
Coote Hall), Hughstown (the seat of the 
present Coote Mulloy, esq.) &c.&c. He m. 
Honora Dowell (of the family of Dowell, of 
Mantua House) and had a son and suc- 

William O'Mi'llov, who is styled by 

Lodge, in his Peei-age of Ireland, " the 
great O'Mulloy, of Ughterhera, in the county 
of Roscommon, knight of the shire and go- 
vernor of that county." At a meeting of 
all the gentlemen of Roscommon, held at 
Ballintnbber, at which Sir Lucas Dillon pre- 
sided, we findhis name enumerated (together 
with the names of Sir Ulick Bourke, Sir L. 
Dillon, Sec. &c.) amongst those who attended 
and took an oath " for maintaining the king's 
prerogative and the Romish religion." He 
m. Margaret Clifi'ord, and had four sons and 
three daughters, viz. 

I. Edward, who m. Mary, daughter of 
the O'Conor Don, and had a son. 
Green Mulloy, who m. Elinor, dan. 
of Sir Maurice Hurley, knt. and was 
father of Capt. William Mulloy, in 
the service of James II., who m. Al- 
son, daughter of Sir Oliver Tuite, 
bart. of Sonnagh, in Westmeath, and 
had one son, Theobald Mulloy, cap-

Portugal, d. s. p. 

II. Conor, of whom presently.

esq. of Ballintobber, son of Sir Hugh 
O'Conor, by whom she had issue, 

Owen O'Conor, who followed the 
fortunes of Charles II. to Flan- 
ders, and there obtained a com- 
pany in the Duke of Gloucester's 
regiment. By the act of settle- 
ment his estates were restored to 
him. He became subsequently 
governor of Athlone, and being 
sent to England with the troops 
appointed to oppose William's 
landing, was made prisoner and 
confined in the castle of Chester, 
where he died in 1690, leaving, 
by Lady Tuite his wife, no male 
issue, whereupon his estates de- 
volved on his brother.

Conor Mullov, m- Jane, daughter of Sir 
Richard Rutledge, of Belleck, near Bally- 
shannon, by Miss O'Brien his wife, a des- | 
cendant of the house of Thomond, and had 
a son. 



Theobald Mulloy (called by corruption 
Tobias), wlio held the coraniissioii ol' cap- 
tain of horse in King William's army at 
the battle of the IJoyne (1690). It is stated 
that Capt. Mulloy, perccivinp; William's 
horse shot, roile up aiid jjave his own charger 
to the king, and that for this seasonable 
service his majesty requested he would call 
at his tent after the action, and choose what- 
ever horse he pleased from tlie royal stud. 
Mulloy selected one called Kaiser, the king's 
favourite, which William cheerfully gave 
him, with the housings and pistols. This 
horse, which lived to be forty years of age, 
never was allowed to be ridden by any but 
the old captain, and when he began to get 
stiff, was let run for life. He became so 
familiar, that he used to come to the hall 
door and eat bread out of the hand. 
Theobald, alias Tobias Mulloy, appears in 
the list of gentlemen attainted by the ill- 
fated James, and in an act for raising the 
sum of £120,(100 on all lands, tenements, 
and heredit.iments, made in 1G9.5, Henry 
LordCapel being then lord deputy, Captain 
Tobias Mulloy is appointed one of the com- 
missioners for the county of Roscommon. 
He married twice: by his first wife, a daugh- 
ter of Sir — King, he had no issue ; but by 
the second, Frances Marlowe, he had two 
sons, Chakles, his heir, and William, who 
il. at E.xeter, a captain in the army. Capt. 
Theobald Mulloy, who was noiiiinatcd four 
times successively high sherilf for the counfy 
of Koscommon in the reign of William HI. 
d. in 1734, and was s. by his son, 

Charles Mulloy, esq. This gentleman 
being at Atlilonewhen some of A'l'n// James's 
officers were raising recruits, was persuaded 
to fight for the deposed monarch, and had 
the singular fate of being taken i)risoiier by 
a party of the regiment of horses in which 
his father was captain, at the battle of the 
Boyne. He was then but seventeen, and 
for his fatlier's sake his life was spared. l\v 
afterwards served in some of William's 
wars, and at the siege of Vigo was wounded 
in the leg. He m. Hester Adams (of the 
same family as the American president 
Adams) and had three sons, 

Jdiiv, who 711. Miss (.'ooper, of Cooper's 
Hill, in Sligo, but had no issue. 

Charles, il. at college. 

CooTE, of whom we have to treat. 
Charles Mulloy il. in I'tiO, aged ninety-two, 
and was s. by his only surviving son, 

('ooTE Ml I i.oY, esq. of Huglistown, b. in 
1720, cornet in Hamilton's dragoons. This 
gentleman was considered a person of sucli 
solid judgment as to be frequently appointed 
sole arbitrator iindiT the court of chancery, 
and his decisions «eri- ever known to he 
reversed. The then lord chancellor used 
to say, " that one suih man in every county 
would prove a national blessing." 

Mr. Mulloy wedded in May, 174.5, Mar- 
garet, daughter of James Dodd, esq. of 
Ardagh, (of the family of Dodd, of Swallow- 
field, in Berkshire) by Martha, his wife, 
daughter of Colonel Auchmuty, an officer 
in King William's army at the battle of 
the Boyne, and had issue, 
Tobias, his heir.

s. by his son, 

Tobias Mii.loy, esq. of Hughstown, h. 
6th May, 1748, who was called to the bar, 
but never practised. At the period of the 
union h(! published a pamphlet against Sir 
Hercules Langrish, and in favour of trien- 
nial parliaments, which excited considerable 
attention at the time of its production. Mr.

Glebe, county of Sligo (of which 

place he was rector), iu April, 1832. 

Mr. Mulloy d. 10th February, 1825, and 

was s. by his eldest son, the present Coote 

Mi'LLOY, esq. of Huobstown. 

The office of liereditary standard bearer to 
the crown of England in Ireland, vests in 
this family, and Mr. Mulloy, of Oak Port, 
is in possession of a drawing copied from an 
original entry made in a record in the office 
of arms (Dublin Castle), by Thomas Pres- 
ton, esq. Ulster king at arms, in the year 
1634, and attested by Sir William Betham 
(the presentUlster), representing O'Mulloy 
invested with the coat armour proper to his 
office, mounted upon a steed richly capari- 
soned, bearing in his hand the standard of 
England, and upon his shield the family 
arms. The posterity 
of Hugh Mor (or 
great ) O ' Mulloy, 
Lord of Fircal, hay- 
ing failed in the 
elder line, in the 
person of Conall 
O'Mulloy, chief of 
his name, and Lord 
of Fercall (or Fir- 
cal) in the reign of 
Queen Elizabeth, 
(vide O'Mulloy pe- 
digree, office of arms) 
the honours of pri- 
mogeniture devolve 
upon the posterity of Captain Anthony Mul- 
loy, who, as we have already stated, was the 
first of the O'Mulloys who settled in Con- 
naught, and tenth in descent in the younger 
line from the said Hugh Mor. 

Coote Mulloy, esq. of Hughstown (the 
lineal descendant of Captain Anthony) is 
therefore the present chief of his name, and 
consequently hereditary standard bearer to 
the crown of England in Ireland. The present 
O'Mulloys in the King's county belong to a 
branch junior to that of which Captain An- 
thony was the founder, (vide O'Mulloy pe- 
digree, office of arms). Brewer, in his 
" Beauties of Ireland," adverts to this cir- 
cumstance (see vol. ii. Leinster, King's 
county), by observing that " O'Mulloy, of 
Wyhteheese, county of Roscommon, (which 

place is now called Coote Hall) is supposed 
to be the chief of the naine of O'Mulloy. 
When it recollected that William, commoniy 
called the Great O'Mulloy, was, as has been 
already stated, present at a meeting of the 
Roscommon gentlemen, held at Balintobber, 
in the year 1641, and that he was one of 
those, who, upon that occasion, took an 
oath for maintaining the Roman Catholic 
religion (vide the above mentioned peerage, 
vol. iv. p. 192), it becomes scarcely matter 
of surprise, that in the great rebellion which 
broke out the following year, the possessions 
of this chieftain (if such he may be denomi- 
nated) should have been forfeited. These 
possessions consisted of the grant already 
stated to have been made to Captain An- 
thony Mulloy (Ee'izabeth's reign), and 
were known by the name of Urthaheera, 
which large tract of country fell, during the 
rebellion, into the hands of the Cootes, of 
whom the first that obtained a footing in 
Connaught, was Sir Charles Coote, father 
to the first Earl of Mouutrath, and brother 
to Richard, Lord Colooney. 

A division of that part of the manor of 
Coote Hall, which still retains the name, 
has, by purchase, latterly become the pro- 
perty of Hugh Barton, esq. from whom Mr. 
Mulloy, of Oak Port, holds it by lease. An 
extensive portion of the former manor of 
Coote Hall, now simply called Ballyfer- 
moyle, has also by purchase come into the 
possession of the Oak Port family. Thus 
time has rendered to the descendants of the 
original proprietors, the justice of restoring 
to them part of the domains of their ances-

LESLIE, CHARLES-POWELL, esq. of Glasslough, in the county of Monaghan, 
b. 13th September, 1821, succeeded his father 15th November, 1831. 


John Lf.slip., the founder of the Glass- 
lough branch of l\\f Lrslii- family, in In'- 
land, adi'sccndant of tlic house of Halqiihuir, 
in Abcrdi'cnsblrc. was l)orn in the north of 
.Scotland, iiiid cducati-d first at Aberdeen 
and then at Oxiord. f)f this distintjuislied 
divine we have the follnwinc interesting 
account in Sir .lames Ware's History of 
Ireland, edited by Harris. " .lobii Leslie 
spoke rreneli, Spanisli, and Italian, with 
the same propriety and flui'iuy as the na- 
tives ; anil was so (;riMt a master of the 
Latin that it is said of him, when be was in 
Spain, " .SWiM Lrsleiiu l.aliiic lixfiiitiir." 
Ill- eiintiiinid twenty-two yenr» abroail. and 
diiriii); that time was at the sii'^e ul l{u 

chclle and the expedition of the Isle of 
Rhee, with the Duke of Bui^kiiigbam. He 
was all along conversant in courts, where 
he learned that address which gave a pe- 
culiar grace even to his preaching. These 
accomplisliinents obtained biin the favour of 
many i)rineis abroad ; and at home he was 
|iartieiilarly happy in that of A'lHjr CllARLF.s 
L, who adnntted him into his privy council, 
both in .Scotland and Ireland, in which sta- 
tions be was contiiuied by A'iiii/ CllAltLES H. 
after the restoration of the royal family. 
His chief ])referinent in the church of 
Scotland was the bishoprick of Orkney, 
called the bishoprick of the Isles, from 
whence he was translated to Raphoc, on the 
1st .June, l(i;);j, and was the same year ad- 
mitted into the privy council of Ireland. 
When be (irst came to Haphoe, he found 
the revenues of it engrossed into the hands 
of several gentlemen, who ctnnbined to- 
getbi'r to maintain what they had gotten. 
Hut, by an expensive lawsuit, he retrieved 
the rights and estate of the see, and in- 
creased the income of it nearly one-third. 
He built a stately palace in his diocese for 
hiinself and his suitcessors, contriving it fur 
strength as well as beauty, which proved 
to be useful afterwards in the rebellion of 
Kill, and preserved u good part of that 
eoiintry, particularly those under his pro- 
tection in bis dioccKC. Vet he would not 



take niililary command on him, as judging 
it not suitable to liis functions ; though up- 
on occasions we are told that he performed 
the office of a general, and even ventured to 
expose his own person, as particularly in 
the case of Sir Ralph Gore, who was be- 
sieged in Maglierelwt/, and reduced to great 
extremities. When the Lagan forces, con- 
sisting of three regiments, refused to hazard 
themselves for the relief of him and his 
party, yet tliis bishop with his company, 
tenants and friends, sallied forth amidst the 
flames of the whole country, relieved the 
besieged, and evidenced in the action as 
much personal valour as regular conduct. 

After tlie declension of the king's cause in 
England, he raised a foot company lor his 
majesty in Ireland, and maintained them, 
both officers and soldiers, at his own charge. 
He afterwards endured a siege in his castle 
of Raphoe, before he would surrender it to 
Oliver Cromwell, and held out the last in 
tliat country. After the king's restoration, 
he hastened with so much zeal to see him, 
that he rode from Chester to London in 
twenty-four hours. 

He was translated to the see of Clogher j 
on tlie 17lh June, 1661 ; and it is said, the 
king would afterwards have given him more 
profitable preferments, bat he excused him- 
self, resolving to end his labours among 
those with whom he had suffered, and where 
his influence was most powerlul. 

He was a person of great temperance, 
and so great a stranger to covetousness, 
that he hardly understood money, which, 
however, he employed to the best uses. He 
wrote on the art of memory, and several 
other curious and learned treatises, which 
were designed for the public, but were all 
destroyed with his library, of many years 
collection, and several manuscripts, which 
lie had gained in foreign countries, partly 
by tlie rapine of tlie Irish, and partly by 
Jui>(/ William's army, in 1690, long after 
his death. He d. at liis seat at Castlelesley, 
alius Glassloiu/h, in September, 1671, and 
was there buried in a church of his own 
building, which he had procured to be made 
a parish church by act of parliament, and 
consecrated to St. Salvator. He was reck- 
oned at the time of his death the oldest bishop 
then in the world, having been so about 
fifty years, from the time of his promotion 
to the bishoprick of the Isles till the time of 
his death." His lordship's son and suc- 

Charles Le;sl!e, was admitted a fellow 
commoner in the college of Dublin in 1664, 
where he continued till he commenced mas- 
ter of arts, and then entered the Temple, in 
London, where he devoted himself to the 
study of the law ; but after pursuing it some 
years, he at length declared himself so 
"much disgusted with a professional casu- 

istry, always on that side of the question 
which bears the golden fruit, that he re- 
linquished the legal profession, in 1680, 
entered into holy orders, and, in 1687, be- 
came chancellor of the cathedral of Con- 
At the Revolution refusing to take 

the oaths to Kiny William, he wasdeprived 
of his preferment, and followed the for- 
tunes of the exiled monarch. Eventually, 
however, after having undergone many diffi- 
culties through good and bad report, he 
returned to Ireland in 1721, and died the 
March following, at his seat Glasslough, 
where, in the beginning of the year 1689, 
there had been a brisk skirmish, wherein 
nearly two hundred of the Irish were slain.

logical tracts and political papers, intended 
to serve the cause and party he had em- 
braced. His son and successor,

Mr. Tayleur, who is a deputy-lieutenant for the county of 
Salop, succeeded his father in September, 1813. 


Galfrid le Tayleiir, and Agatha his 
wife, possessed the manor of Rodington in 
1271, and in 1313 John, son of Galfrid, is 
mentioned as confirming a grant, made by 
Clarice, widow of SirRogerde Apelegh,knt. 
of the rent of Rodington Mill to the canons 
of Haughmond. In 1516, Jeft'rye, abbot of 
Lilleshall, demised the Grange of Longden 
upon Tern to 

William Tayleur, for the term of eighty- 
one years. His great grandson, 

Creswell Tayleur, being then styled of 
Meeson, obtained a lease of Rodington from 
John Gregory, the heir of an ancient family 
whose ancestor settled there in consequence 
of his marriage with the daughter and heiress 
of George Onslow. Creswell Tayleur was 
father of 

John Tayleur, esq. of Rodington, b. at 
Longdon in 1639; admitted of St. John's

ton was lord of Kast and West Marton soon 
after the Conquest, wliicli lordships, as well

This family is of Saxon origin, and held 
Folefort, as it is written in Domesday Book, 
from which place the name is derived. Here, 
as it appears by records, as well as registries 
in the College of Arms, they were seated in 
the time of Richard I., and have continued 
in possession of the same name, in the male 
line, by uninterrupted desceutduring the long 
period of more than six hundred years. The 
mansion, which is a quadrangular pile of 
building, is still in good repair, though one 
of the most ancient in the west of England ; 
standing in a park well diversified with fine 
timber, and with extensive woods and planta- 
tions around it. Tliis house was garrisoned 
for Charles I., and was taken by a part of 
Fairfax's army under the command of Col. 
Okey, in December, 1645. Many knights of 
the family distinguished themselves in the 
Holy Land, SirBaldwin de Fnlford more par- 
ticularly. Sir Thomas Fulford was one of 
the knights who went up with the Earl of 
Devon and relieved Exeter when besieged 
by Peikin Warbeck, in 1497. 

According to the records in the Heralds' 
Office we find the first of the family is

Prince styles Sir Baldwin " a great soldier 
and a traveller of so undaunted resolution, 
that, for the honour and liberty of a royal 
lady, in a castle besieged by the infidels, he 
fought a combat with a Sarazen ; for bulk 
and bigness an unequal match, (as the re- 
presentation of him cut in the wainscot in 
Fulford Hall doth plainly show,) whom yet 
he vanquished, and rescued the lady." He

Mr. Phillipps s. his father 20th November, 1812. He is 
a justice of the peace for the county, and an alderman for 
the city of Hereford. 


The constant tradition of this family has 
been that they descend from a younger 
branch of the Picton House, but after much 
laborious investigation, nothing has been 
ascertained capable of throwing any light 
on the point in question. That they are of 
Welsh origin is however certain, it having 
been proved by family evidences still in 
existence, that they were possessed of 
lands in the parish of Disserth, in Radnor- 
shire about the middle of the reign of Eli- 
zabeth, whence, later in the same reign, 
they removed into Herefordshire, still re- 
taining possession of the Radnorshire pro- 
perty till the middle of the last century, 
when the estates called Upper and Lower

t Mr. Melting was a royalist, and one of the 
contributors to the distresses of the king when at 
Oxford in 1644, at the period of the invasion of 
the Scots, as appears from the subjoined document 
in the possession of ]Mr. Phillipps, of Longworth. 
It is curious, as containing the king's sign manual, 
as well as the autograph of the lord keeper (Lyt- 
tleton) and Sir Henrv Lingen, then high sheriff, 
and one of the principal sufferers in the royal 
cause in the county of Hereford. The following is 
a copy of tlie original document ;

Lieutenant-Colonel Spens succeeded to the representation of the ancient family of 
Spens of Latliallan on the demise of his brother in 1800. 




Tlip faniily of Spens is of very high anti- 
quity ill Scotland, and in the opinion of some 
authors, descended from a younger son of 
the Earl of Fife, as it had lieen in the use of 
carrying in its armorial bearings the lion 
rampant of the great MacdnlV, which denotes 
descent from that illustrious house. 

There were many considerable free barons 
of the name of Spens, who made a good 
figure both at home and abroad, several cen- 
turies ago, but that of Lathallan is docu- 
mented for three or four generations before 
any of the others existid. 

The Spcnses of Kilspindy, who are un- 
doubtedly descended ot Lathallan, made a 
considerable figure in the rcigus of Kinys 
Jamks I. and II. but are now extinct. 

The Spenses of JJodham, in Aberdeen- 
shire, wliich still exist, have been free 
barons ever since the time of .James III. and 
several other Spenses in the same county; 
also tlie Spenses of Berryhole, in Fife, &c. 
&c. are all descended of Lathallan, which 
their armorial bearing testifies. 

The family of Wolmerslon, another great 
branch of the name of Spens, produced 
many worthy patriots, who did honour to 
their country, both in the cabinet and in the 
field, and had also the lion rampant in their 
armorial hearings. 

Count de Spens, who ranked amongst the 
first of the Swedish nobility, and was gene- 
ralissimo of their forces, descended from the 
hyuse of Wolmerston, but that branch of the 
family is now entirely extinct in Scotland. 

Tilt) immediate ancestor of the family of 

Hkmiv df. Spens, who flourished in the 
reign of Aim/ .\i.i-.\\nui.k III. was compel led 
with most of the nobility and gentry of Scol- 
iand, to submit to Kiikj Fdu uui III. in 
X'liMi. Contemporary with this Henry lived 
Nicol de Spens, wlio was also forced to 
swear fealty to A'lW/ l)f)WAiin, when he had 
overrun Scotland in the same y<ar, \'i'M'>, 
What connexion Henry and Nicol had with 
one another does not appear. Henry died 
soon after the year IJitKI, and was succeeded 
by his son, 

Thomas dp. Spens, who in the reign of 
RoiiKUT Hm CI , is inenti(MU(l in a charter of 
donation to the inonasli'ry of Soltray, toge- 
ther with Sir Uidicrt Krilh, great marishall 
ofScotland, Sir Kichard Keith, his brother, 
and Juhn Kiilh, his son, \c. Sic. This 
('barter has no date, but appears to have been 
granted about the year IJl'itl. He is witness 
in another I'harter to Ihi' s.ime monastery, 
with thi' said Sir Itobert Keith, itc. This 
charter also wants a dale, but must have 
been in or before IH.TJ, in whirh year Sir 
Hobert Keith lost his life lighting in defence 

of the liberties of his country, at the disas- 
trous battle of Duplin. Thomas de Spens 
died shortly after, and was succeeded by his 

William df, Spens, who is mentioned in 
an authentic writ in favour of his son, here- 
after narrated. He left issue, two sons, 
William, his heir. 

AValter de Spens, who is witness in a 
will of the Bishop of Aberdeen, toge- 
ther with Robert, Earl of Fife and 
Monteath, anno I38'2, but we can 
give no account of his posterity. 
William died in the end of the reign of 
David Buuce, and was succeeded by his 
eldest son, 

William df, Spens, who was proprietor of 
the lands and barony of Lathallan, in Fife- 
shire, and several others, of which the Earls 
of Fife were superiors, till the forfeiture of 
Murdock, Duke of Albany and Earl of Fife, 
in \A-2C), after which this family held these 
lands of the crown, and Lathallan hath been 
their chief seat and title ever since the reign 
of RiiBKKT II. He married Isabel, daugh- 
ter and heiress of Dunc.m Campbell, of 
Oleii-Douglas, Tarbit, S;c. in Itunibarlon- 
shire. This is instructed by a precept for 
infefling "William de Spens (therein de- 
signed son of William) and Isabel Camp- 
bell, his spouse, in the lands of Atlialand, 
Kittedie, and Craig-Sanguhar, in the county 
of Fife, also the lands of (ilcn-Douglas, &c. 
in Dumbartonshire, and some tenements in 
and about the town of Perth, &c." The pre- 
cept is dated the .Oth, and the sasiue follow- 
ing thereon, the Kith May, I3K;>. 

In consecpience of this marriage the family 
of Lathallan, with several of their cadets, 
added to their arms girony of eight, the pa- 
ternal coat of the fainilj of Argyll. 

We shall only further observe that many 
descendants of this family have carried lo- 
zenges or masdes, as well as the lion, in 
their armorial bearings. 

This William entered into an indenture 
with Duncan, Earl of L<nnox, and with the 
consent of the said Isabel Campbell, his 
spouse, let.s to the said earl for his lifetime, 
allenarly, part of the lands of (jlen-Doug- 
las, Tarbit, &lc. for six merks yearly of lack- 
duty, S;c. This curious deed is dated at 
Strealing, the i»th of .luly, l.iiW. to which 
Kniiirt, Farl of Fife and Moiileith, Sir Pa- 
trick de (Iraham, Sir Walter Huchanaii, 
Duncan Campbell, \c. fvc. are witnesses. 

William de Spens afterwards got a i'har- 
ter from the Farl of File, wliich was ralilicd 
and ctjiilinned in jitirio jiftrliinnnitit, bv a

apprehended and condemned at said courts, 
he is to be hanged on the gallows belonging 
to the earldom of Fife, &,c. &c. The con- 
firmation of this curious charter is dated 1 3th 
February, 1430. By Isabel Campbell, his 
wife, he had two sons and one daughter, 

I. John, his heir. 

II. William, first of the Spenses of 
Kilspindy, a family which flourished 
with lustre in Perthshire, for three 
or four generations, when the male 
line failed, as before observed. 

III. Isabel was m. to Andrew Balfour, 
a son of the family of Burleigh, who 
got with her a part of the lands of 
Glen-Douglas, &c. confirmed anno 

William, of Lathallan, lived to a great age ; 
died about the year 1432, and was s. by his 
eldest son, 

John de Spens, who in his father's life- 
time was designated of Glen-Douglas, which 
title he retained as long as he lived. He 
was a man of parts and spirit, and extremely 
active in business. He was tutor in law to 
his nephew, Andrew Spens, of Kilspindy, 
son of his brother William, and became 
bound in an indenture, whereby the said 
Andrew, when he came of age, should marry 
a daughter of James Cochrane, &c. &c. 
This indenture is dated the 19th day of Au- 
gust, 1419. He got a charter from Sir John 
Arnot, of that ilk, Johanni Spins de Glen- 
Douylas, ffc. of an annuity out of the barony 
of Arnot, in Fifeshire, anno 1420. He got 
also a charter under the great seal, from 
King James I. of thelandsof Torry, Drum- 
gay, Sec. dated the 24th day of April, 1430. 
After his father's death he got a charter of 
the lands of Lathallan, Kittledie, Craig- 
Siinguhar, &,c. dated the 4th day of Decem- 
ber, 1433 ; and, being a man of extraordi- 
nary abilities, and highly esteemed in his 
own country, was chosen one of the lords of 
the articles in a full parliament held at Perth 
by the same King James, anno 1434. 

There is still preserved among the writs 
of this family, an indenture, in which are 
these words: "Between a worshipful and 
mighty lord, Walter of Staliburton, lord of 
Dirleton, upon the tae part, and John de 
Spens, lord of Glen-Douglas, on the t'other 
part : That nobvithstanding the said lord of 
Dirleton had wadset to the said John de 
Spens the lands of Balnablain, &,c. &c. for 
a certain sum of money then advanced by 
said John, Sec. &c. yet the said lord may re- 
deem the same upon repaying the said sum, 
&c. &c. &c." This indenture is dated the 
24th May, 1435. He tn. Isabel, daughter 
of Sir John Wemyss, of Rircs, progenitor of 

the Earls of Wemyss, and by her he had 
four sons, 

I. Alexander, his heir. 

II. Robert, who got from his father the 
lands of Kittedie, in Fife, with some 
tenements about Perth, but his only 
son, John, dying without issue, these 
lands returned to tlie family. 

III. Thomas, who being bred a church- 
man, was first bishop of Galloway, 
then of Aberdeen. He was a man of 
extraordinary parts and learning, 
and made a great figure in his time. 
He was appointed lord privy seal for 
Scotland, and was often employed by 
the estates of the nation, as ambassa- 
dor to negociate the most arduous 
aftairs in the reign of A'tn<jr James 
HI. and always acquitted himself 
with honour. He erected an hospital 
at Edinburgh, where he died, and was 
buried in the Trinity College church- 
yard, at the foot of Leith-wynd, anno 

IV. Patrick, who having betaken him- 
self to a military life, was an officer 
in the company of Scots Guards, sent 
from Scotland by King James II. to 
Charles VII. of France, anno 1450. 
He was ancestor of the family of 
Spens-Destignots, of France. 

John, of Lathallan and Glen-Douglas, did 
not long survive his fatlier, but died in the 
beginning of the reign of James II. and was 
succeeded by his eldest son, 

Alexander de Spens, of Lathallan, who 
being a man of authority and power, was by 
King James II. appointed high constable of 
the town of Craill for life, and got a charter 
under the great seal, de officio constahularii

5Krmcj)6, of Krbanmabli). 

The house of Kemeys, originally De Ca- 
niois, Camoes, and Camys, is of Norman 
extraction, and the name of its patriarch

Large possessions were granted to the ia- 
inily in the counties of Sussex and Surrey, 
and so early as the year 1258 Ralph de 
Cairiois was a baron by tenure. He was

branch of the family, which had settled 
in Pembrokeshire, there enjoyed large 

popj^essions, and as Lords of Camaes and St. 
Dogmaels, exercised almost regal sway. In 
the conquest of Monmouthshire and Gla- 
morganshire, the Camays were much distin- 
guished, and were rewarded with grants of 
" Kemey's Commander," and " Kemey's 
Interior." One branch* became established 
at Llanvarr Castle in Monmouthshire (now 
in the possession of Colonel Kemeys-Tynte); 
and another, fixing itself at the Began, in 
Glamorganshire, erected the mansion of 
Cefn-Mably, the residence of the present 
chief of the family. 

Edward Kemeys, son of Edward Kemeys, 
who was at the con(|uest of Upper Gwent, 
married Nest, daugliter and heiress of An- 
drew de Began, lord of Began, a lineal des- 
cendant of Bletliyn Maynarch, lord of Bre- 
con, and thus acquired the lordship of Be- 
gan, which for centuries after was the prin- 
cipal abode of his descendants. His great- 

Jenkin Kemeys, of Began, married Cris- 
ley, daughter of Morgan ap Llewellen, and 
had one son and a daughter, viz. 
Jevan, his heir. 

Margaret, m. to Jevan ap Morgan, of

mother of

Henry YIII. who espoused the 
sister of Thomas Cromwell, Earl 
of Essex, and had a son. 

Sir Richard Williams, who 
assumed at the desire of 
Henry VIII. the surname 
of his uncle Cromwell, and 
through the influence of that 
once powerful relative ob- 
tained wealth and station.

Tills family, and that of Shardeloes, (vol. 
i. page 580) derive from a common proge- 
nitor, but the settlement in Ireland must 
have taken place at a remote period, for we 
find the " Drake of Drakeratb" a distin- 
guished person iu the annals of that king- 
dom througliout the turbulent and tyrannic 
rule of the Tudors and the Sri'AKTS, the 
sanguinary despotism of Cromwell, and tlie 
confiscating reign of William. 

The mansion of Brakf.rath was situated 
iu the barony of Kells, iu the county of 
Meath, (where the ruins still remain,) and 
was erected by a member of the family of 
Drake of Ashe,* in the county of Down, 
who acquired Uirge estates in that part of 
Ireland, and settled there. Those estates 
continued vested iu his descendants until the 
rebellion of 1641, when they were forfeited, 
but a small portion was subsequently res- 
tored by the court of claims in the beginning 
of Charles II. 's reign. A cadet of the fa- 
mily. Captain Peter Drake, a soldier ot for- 
tune, who fiillowed the wars through all the 
fields of Europe iu the beginning of the last 
century, published a very amusing detail of 
his adventures, which he begins with the 
situation of bis house at the time of the Re- 
volution. " I Has born (he says) 12th Oc- 
tober, 1G7I. My father's name wasGeorge, 
he was eldest son of AVilliam Drake, of 
Drakerath, and married Elizabeth, eldest 
daughter of Patrick Stanley, esq. of Marls- 
town, in the county of Louth, and niece of 
Jobn Stanley, esq. of Finiier, near Slane, iu 
IMeath. The family remained in peaceable 
possession of the estate from their first arri-

val until the war of 1641, when with many 
more they forfeited, and were driven to shift 
for themselves. At the beginning oI'Charles 
II. 's reign, there was a court of claims set 
on. foot, by which a few of the proprietors 
were restored, and my father was of the 
ntiniher. He became, however, possessed 
only of a part, and was at the eve of being 
restored to the whole, when an order came 
from the king to dissolve the court, so that 
an end for that time was put to his hopes. 
My father had some time before this with 
his family settled in the county of Kildare, 
having taken some lands from William, Lord 
Dungan, (to « bom he had the honour of be- 
ing related,) at Kildroughet, where he built 
a handsome seat. Here he continued until 
the Revolution, when his atfairs took a new 
turn. Some time before, or about the be- 
ginning of the troubles. Lord Dungan was 
created Earl of Limerick, and if I remember 
rightly, constituted governor of that city ; 
thither his lordship repaired, taking my fa- 
ther with him, whom he soon after promoted. 
He was appointed one of the commissioners 
of the customs, and cliief comptroller of the 
mint. As soon as King James came to 
Dublin, and called a parliament, my father 
was put into the commission of the peace for 
the county of Kildare, and declared himself 
a candidate for the borough of Navan. He 
was at the same time restored to the remain- 
der of Ills estates ; after wliiih he returned 
to Limerick to fulfill his official duties. Iu 
June, 1690, he came to visit his family, and 
settle his affairs; but the loss of the battle 
of the Boyne (which happened the 1st July 
following) obliged him with all expedition 
to move oft' with his family for Limerick,

John de Frampton was returned to serve 
in parliament for the borough of Dorches- 
ter, 31 Edward III. He is supposed to have 
had two sons, namely, John de Frampton, 
(who was returned to parliament as a bur- 
gess for the borough of Weymouth, 135.) 
and 1360 ; for Dorchester, 1357 and 1362 ; 
and as knight of the shire for the county of 
Dorset, 1372 and 1380, and seems to have 
been the father of Sir Henry Frampton, who 
was M. P. for Melcombe Regis in 1380, 
1383, and 1384, and d. s. p.) and 

Walter de Frampton, who was M.P. 
for tlie borough of Melcombe Regis in 1357, 
1362, and 1368. He was lord of the manor, 
and possessor of the advowson of Buckland 
Ripers, an estate adjacent to the towns of 
Weymoutli and Melcombe Regis, in the 
county of Dorset, and acquired tlie manor 
and estate of Moreton, with other lands in 
its vicinity, by his marriage, which took 
place in or previous to 1366, with Margaret, 
the heiress of that property. What her 
surname was has not been positively ascer- 
tained, but it seems nearly certain that slie 
was of the family of Husee,* who were lords 
of this manor at a time immediately pre- 
ceding the period at which it passed into the 
possession of the family of Frampton. Wal- 
ter de Frampton d. 14tb October, 1389, his 
wife having died before him, and left issue 
by her, besides a daughter, Joan, m. to Sir 
Thomas Stewell, knt. of Catherston, county 
Somerset, a son, 

John Frampton, of Moreton, who was 
twenty-four years of age at his father's 
death. He was at the battle of Agincourt, 
and was returned six times to parliament as 
knight of the shire for the county of Dorset, 
from 1387 to 1405; and in 4 Henry V. was 
appointed a commissioner to array the 
county of Dorset against a French invasion. 
He was three times married. By his first 
wife, Isabel, daughter of Robert Prouse, he 
liad one daughter, 

Margaret, who ni. Robert Bingham, of 
Binghanis Melcombe, in the county 
of Dorset, whose marriage articles, 
dated at Moreton, 21st September, 
9 Henry IV. are still extant amongst 
the family documents at Melcombe. 
By Edith, daughter of Sir Matthew Stawell, 

* In 31 Edward I. 1303, John Husee had a 
grant of free warren in all his demesne lands at 
liloreton. Roger Husee, his son and heir, was 
summoned to parliament 2*2 and 23 Edavard III. 
amongst the barons of the realm, and died 35 Ed- 
ward III. 1361, seized, amongst other lands, of 
the manor and advowson of Moreton. Leaving no 
issue, his estates devolved, by virtue of an entail, 
on John Husee, jun. then thirty years of age and 

knt. of Catherston, county of Somerset, his 
second wife, lie had three sons, 

I. Robert, who succeeded him at 

II. John, M.P. for the borough of 
Lyme Regis, father of 

John, of Potterne and Echilhamp- 
ton, Wilts, who, by Johanna, his 
wife, daughter and heir of Ed- 
ward Mareschall, of Woodcote, 
Hants, had two sons, 

Roger, of Potterne, who even- 
tually inherited Moreton. 
Edward, who d. before 1530, 
leaving by his wife, a daugh- 
ter of — Hunsell, of Sy- 
mondsbury, a son, 

III. William, who was M.P. for Dor- 
chester, 1431 and 1450, and for Wey- 
mouth, 1433. 

John Frampton d. 26th May, 1426, leaving 
Margaret, his third wife, surviving him, and 
was succeeded at Moreton by his eldest son, 

Robert Frampton, of Moreton, who was 
twenty-six years of age and upwards at his 
father's death, 4 Henry VI. His name 
appears in a list of considerable men of the 
county of Dorset, who were able to spend 
£12 per annum, returned into chancery 12 
Henry VI. By Alice, his first wife, daugh- 
ter and heir of Hugh Deverell, he acquired 
lauds in Coomb Deverell, in the county of 
Dorset, and had several children, who all 
predeceased their fathers./). Hissecondwife 
was Alianor, daughter and heiress of Wil- 
liam Browning, of Melbury Sampford, Dor- 
set, and of Upton Lovell, in the county of 
Wilts (who m. secondly, Walter Barough, 
of Charford, in the same shire), and dying 
4th February, 1465, left by her, 

James Frampton, of Moreton, his son 
and heir, who was born in 1452. He m. 
Anastasia, daughter of Sir John Newbo- 
rough, knt. of LuUworth, in the county of 
Dorset, and d. 5th June, 1.523, as appears 
by a monument to his memory, whereon is i 
his effigy in brass, in the church at More- 
ton. Leaving no legitimate issue, he set- 
tled his estates on James Frampton, his S 
bastard son, who nt. Avice, daughter of Sir I 
Thomas de la Lynde, knt. of Winterborn 

upwards. Of the death or heir of this John Husee, 
we have no certain account, but as the manor of 
Moreton was settled upon him and the heirs of his 
body, with remainder to the right heirs of the afore- 
said' Roger, it mav be conjectured with the greatest 
probability, that ' Margaret, the wife of Walter 
Frampton, was daughter of the last mentioned 
John Husee, and succeeded to the property by- 
virtue of this entail. 



Clenston, in the county of Dorset (vtIio af- 
terwards became successively the wife of 
Thomas Treiicliard, of Lytchett, and Gilbert

BEAUMONT, JOHN, esq. of Barrow-upon-Trent, in the county of Derby, i. 22nd 
July, 1826, succeeded his father, 11th March, 1834. 


The ancient family of Beaumont deduces 
its descent from the early sovereigns of 
France, and was established in England by 
Henry de Beaumont, son of Lewis de Bri- 
enne, by Agnes, his wife. Viscountess De 
Beaumont and Mayne, who came, according 
to general supposition, from his native coun- 
try, at the instance of Qj/eeM Eleanor, consort 
of Edward I. and bore many eminent em- 
ployments in the state, for which he acquired 
considerable territorial grants, and was sum- 
moned to Parliament as a Baron in 1:109.

nobleman, and for full particulars of his im- 
mediate successors, refer to Burke's Ex- 

tinct and Dormant Peerage and Burke's

Avritten. His minor pro-

Silt W AirKit ICiii.r, of Clinrhoroiigh, re- 
ceiwil (he htuioiir of knIglilliiMMl in llilfi, 
and in lOH, was one of the managers against 



the Earl of Straiford at his trial. On the 
breaking out of the civil wars he sided 
with the parliament, and the active part he 
bore in those unhappy times, may be seen 
in Rushworth and Whitlock. He was go- 
vernor of Dorchester and lieutenant of the 
Ordnance, in which latter appointment he 
succeeded Mr. Pym in 1643. In 1645 he 
deciphered some important letters which 
had been intercepted, and received for 
this service the thanks of the House of 
Commons. In 1646, he nas one of the four 
commissioners to the King for peace ; and in 
1647, a commission passed for him to be 
master of the Ordnance. Sir Walter, toge- 
ther witli Mr. Hollis, and other Ephori, (as 
Lord Clarendon styles them), and 7000 foot, 
800 horse, and four pieces of cannon, came 
from Wells to Sherbourne to oppose the 
Marquis of Hertford. On the approach of 
the Earl of Caernarvon, he raised the siege 
of Corfe Castle. 

Sir Walter m. Anne, daughter and heir of 
Francis Dymoke, and sister of Sir Henry 
Dynioke, knt. and with her acquired the 
manors of Erckington and Pipe, in the 
county of Warwick, wliich he sold, 1 
Charles I. to Sir Walter Devereux, hart. 
By this lady, who d. in 1665, he had issue, 
Thomas, aged 2, in 1 623, whom. Susanna, 
4th daughter of VA'illiamFiennes, 3rd 
Viscount Say and Sele, and by her, 
who m. 2ndly, Robert Hawley, esq. 
left at his decease, which occurred 
during the lifetime of his father, two 
sons and two daughters. The former 
were Walter, who m. Anne, daughter 
of Thomas Trenchard, esq. and Tho- 
mas, of whom presently, as successor 
to his grandfather. 
Anne, m. to Norton of Hampshire. 
Sir Walter died in 1665, and his son having 
pre-deceasedhim, the estates eventually de- 
volved on his grandson, 

General Thomas Erle, of Charborough, 
a military officer of high reputation, who 
commanded in Ireland and Flanders in the 
wars of A'jHijr William and Queen Anne: 
in 1714 he was appointed lieutenant-general 
of the Ordance, governor of Portsmouth 
and Southsea Castle, and in 1716 made 
general of foot. He was likewise privy 
councillor to Queen Anne and George I. 
" At the battle of Aghrim in 1691, Major- 
general Mackay, observing several bodies 
of the enemy's horse and foot draw olT 
from the line and move towards the road, 
where they were hard put to it by the Eng- 
lish, laid hold of tlie opportunity, and 
ordered his troops to march over the bog 
which fronted the enemy's main body. The 
regiments of Erle, Herbert, Creighton, and 
Brewer, going over the narrowest place, 
where the hedges on tlie hostile side ran 
farthest into the bog, they bad orders to 

march to the lowest of the ditches adjoin- 
ing to tlie side of the bog, and there to post 
themselves till the horse should come about 
by Aghrim Castle and sustain them, and till 
the other foot had marched over tlie other 
bog before, where it was broader, and were 
supported by Foulks and Brigadier Stuart's 
regiment. Erie's, and the other three re- 
giments, pursuant to tjieir orders, advanced 
over the bog, most of them passing up to the 
middle in mud and water ; and upon their 
near approach to the ditches, received the 
enemy's fire, which yet did not hinder them 
from marching to the lowest hedge, and 
beating the Irish from them, and so on from 
hedge to hedge, till they were got very 
near their main body. But the Irish had 
so well ordered the matter, that they had 
an easy passage for their horse among all 
these hedges and ditches ; which yet being 
observed by the valiant Colonel Erie, he 
encouraged his men by telling them, "there 
was no way to come off but to lie brave." 
However, the Englisli being bofli flanked 
and fronted, and exposed to all the enemy's 
fire from the neigliliouring hedges, were 
forced from their ground, and obliged to re- 
treat again to the bog with considerable 
loss. And amongst others, the brave colo- 
nels Erie and Herbert being made prisoners, 
the former, after being twice taken and 
retaken, at last got clear of the enemy ; but 
the other (as was reported), was barbarously 
murdered by the Irish, when they saw he 
was likely to be rescued." * 

General Erie commanded as lieutenant- 
general the centre of the army at the battle 
of Almanza in 170i), as the Earl of Gatway 
did the left wing, and lost his right hand iu 
the engagement.
